Forecasts

Lord Schnitzel (10/11), Is A Real Champ (11/2), Vital Island (13/2), Exit Eleven (8/1), Aghmorough Bridge (10/1), Dukehill (12/1), Smiths Girl (14/1), Three Loud Knocks (18/1), Midway To Getaway (20/1), Fiston Du Mou (33/1), Cloudy Wednesday (40/1), Trojan Five (40/1), Nothinbuttime (150/1)

Verdict

Several of these have enjoyed success on the point circuit of late. LORD SCHNITZEL has been in particularly good order in that sphere, winning his last 3 starts, and is taken to continue the good work now pitched into a hunter chase. Vital Island, who went close in a Punchestown cross-country race in April and a winner between the flags last month, is second choice ahead of Is A Real Champ.

  1. LORD SCHNITZEL (IRE)
  2. VITAL ISLAND (IRE)
  3. IS A REAL CHAMP (IRE)
