Forecasts

Malina Girl (8/15), Eat The Book (10/3), Jetango (15/2), Free Nelson (12/1), Here To Stay (22/1), Classic Moet (22/1), Winning Rascal (25/1), Captain Cal (28/1), Lucy Van Pelt (28/1), He's In It (50/1), Baghdad Central (66/1)

Verdict

MALINA GIRL stepped up on previous efforts to get off the mark in a bumper at Wexford last time and her shrewd yard should have her well prepared for this switch to hurdling, so she's fancied to get the better of Eat The Book, who sets the standard but isn't the most straightforward. Winning Rascal is worth a market check.

  1. MALINA GIRL (IRE)
  2. EAT THE BOOK (IRE)
  3. WINNING RASCAL
