Verdict

BEATING THE ODDS ran a race full of encouragement over fences at Punchestown a fortnight ago and he now looks ready to cash in on his lower chase mark. Ran Rite, Stealthy Tom and Robindevidstar (on chase debut) look the main threats.

  1. BEATING THE ODDS (IRE)
  2. RAN RITE (IRE)
  3. STEALTHY TOM (IRE)
