Forecasts

Verdict

VULTAN was useful on the Flat and looks capable of reaching a similar level over hurdles based on his encouraging first attempt at Navan. He should take a bit of stopping, with Luke Short, who was 6 lengths behind him in third at Navan, the one likely to give him most to do unless the betting speaks in the favour of Henry de Bromhead point recruit Marvel de Cerisy.

  1. VULTAN (IRE)
