Forecasts

Enniskerry (11/8), Viscount Gort (2/1), Fortune Street (3/1), Blackpoint (8/1), Porky Rush (14/1), Truckers Angel (20/1), Hide The Truth (40/1), Maunganui (40/1), Ask Aisling (66/1), Carheenlea Blues (66/1), Shake Him Up (80/1), Beatty Trix (100/1), Aboutagout (300/1), Global Mayhem (300/1), Champagne Rebel (300/1), Nomadic Star (N/A), Iluvyounow (N/A)

Verdict

In a race lacking depth VISCOUNT GORT is worth another chance to confirm the promise of his hurdle debut second at Cork in December. Enniskerry has shown clear promise in bumpers and is feared most ahead of Fortune Street, who has had a fair few chances now.

  1. VISCOUNT GORT (IRE)
  2. ENNISKERRY (IRE)
  3. FORTUNE STREET (FR)
