Forecasts

Three By Two (30/100), Takealookatme (13/2), Ricky Bobby (9/1), Wave Walker (14/1), Truckers Angel (16/1), Kate Ill Know (28/1), Mikey Boy (28/1), Coconut Tudor (40/1), Iluvyounow (50/1), Better Than Heaven (50/1), Close Enough (66/1), Get Connected (66/1), Cassidys Girl (66/1), Nananinety (100/1), Porky Rush (150/1)

Verdict

THREE BY TWO shaped well when third at Fairhouse on her hurdling debut and seems to have found a cracking opportunity to open her account in a decidedly weak contest. Meaningful opposition is thin on the ground but ex-pointer Takealookatme could get involved if he's tuned up after a long absence.

  1. THREE BY TWO (IRE)
  2. TAKEALOOKATME (IRE)
  3. KATE ILL KNOW (IRE)
