Forecasts

Henry Star (11/4), Winding River (9/2), Na Caith Tobac (7/1), Union Park (8/1), Brooks Falls (17/2), Ashqar (10/1), Hymie Weiss (11/1), West Breeze (12/1), Excelcior (14/1), Rebel Rascal (14/1), Majavango (16/1), Ever So Cool (16/1), Royal Recital (16/1), First Earl (16/1), Elmount (22/1), Magic Piper (28/1), Sam Lorenzo (50/1)

Verdict

WEST BREEZE is steadily going the right way and, while no threat at Clonmel last time, he didn't have a hard race and there should be more to come. He's a tentative choice to land this, although if Henry Star reproduces the form that saw him finish third in a Cork novice last time, then he'll prove a tough nut to crack.

  1. WEST BREEZE (IRE)
  2. HENRY STAR (IRE)
  3. UNION PARK (FR)
