Forecasts

Bold Emperor (3/1), Espion Du Chenet (9/2), Bridge Native (5/1), Winter Escape (5/1), Goodbye Someday (5/1), Call A Cab (7/1), The Big Galloper (14/1), Rippon Lodge (18/1)

Verdict

If able to cut out the errors that proved costly at Listowel recently, BOLD EMPEROR could be the answer. He landed a Sligo maiden chase on his penultimate start and looks feasibly treated on that evidence. The Big Galloper wasn't disgraced at Punchestown when last seen and he features on an attractive mark judged on the pick of his hurdles form. Winter Escape and Call A Cab are others to consider.

  1. BOLD EMPEROR (IRE)
  2. THE BIG GALLOPER (IRE)
  3. WINTER ESCAPE (IRE)
