Forecasts

Mahlers Dollar (13/8), General Clermont (5/2), Ambitious Fellow (7/2), Rebel Ivy (6/1), Coconut Tudor (11/1), Free Nelson (25/1), Hardy Bloke (125/1), Into The Sunset (200/1), Champagne Rebel (200/1)

Verdict

AMBITIOUS FELLOW improved again to open his account in ready style on his third bumper outing at Fairyhouse last time and there's no obvious reason to think he won't take to hurdling, so he gets the nod ahead of Mahlers Dollar and Rebel Ivy, who have both already achieved a fair level of form in this discipline.

  1. AMBITIOUS FELLOW (IRE)
  2. MAHLERS DOLLAR (IRE)
  3. REBEL IVY (IRE)
