Forecasts

Western Cowboy (5/4), Enniskerry (5/2), Eyewitness (16/5), Danehill Quest (7/1), Flying Glory (22/1), Dinero Falso (25/1), Blowing Dixie (33/1), Bronze Bull (50/1), Abunchofmemories (50/1), Story Rory (66/1), Baile An Sceilg (80/1), Berliet Express (100/1), Kemstar (150/1), Lil Codey (200/1), Hoganville (250/1), Avondale Smiles (250/1)

Verdict

WESTERN COWBOY shaped promisingly when runner-up on his Tramore hurdling debut 18 days ago and is a confident selection to go one better with improvement on the cards. Eyewitness and Enniskerry can give him most to do.

  1. WESTERN COWBOY (IRE)
  2. EYEWITNESS
  3. ENNISKERRY (IRE)
