Forecasts

An Taibhse (1/1), Onehundredpercent (6/5), Blowing Dixie (10/1), Tango Theatre (10/1), We'llhavewan (14/1), The Royal Pump (25/1), Leish Oscars Son (28/1), Ballynagran (33/1), Coolamber (33/1), Story Rory (40/1), Paris The Lad (40/1), Creggsman (50/1), Larry O (66/1), Antrim Town (100/1), Pugin Hall (150/1), Silvertone (150/1)

Verdict

AN TAIBHSE rates the clear form pick and, with more improvement in the pipeline, Henry de Bromhead's mare should prove difficult to beat. Tango Theatre looks the one to give her most to do if able to shrug aside a modest Navan effort, with hurdling-newcomer Blowing Dixie worth a second look too.

  1. AN TAIBHSE (IRE)
  2. TANGO THEATRE (IRE)
  3. BLOWING DIXIE
