Forecasts

Shopping Around (6/4), Bellgrove (5/2), Ricky Langford (4/1), Dontdooddson (4/1), Trans Wood (9/2), Mullaghmurphy Blue (6/1), Tiantu (13/2), Drummullagh Rocky (7/1), Ciankyle (10/1)

Verdict

SHOPPING AROUND is leniently treated based on hurdling form and arrives on the back of a creditable second at Limerick 110 days ago, so he's fancied to go one better if fully tuned up. Ricky Langford is thriving, underlined by a cracking effort over hurdles last time, so he's regarded as the main danger ahead of Drummluggah Rocky.
