Forecasts

Verdict

If FLOORING PORTER is none the worse for his fall at Navan last month then he might up to landing this race for the second year running. Klassical Dream proved well suited by the step up to 3m at Punchestown in the spring and he's feared most ahead of last year's third Sire du Berlais.
