Forecast

Let's Dance (11/8), Airlie Beach (4/1), La Bague Au Roi (10/1), Barra (12/1), Forge Meadow (12/1), Asthuria (14/1), Toe The Line (16/1), Dusky Legend (20/1), Verdana Blue (25/1), Titi De Montmartre (25/1), Coillte Lass (28/1), Awayinthewest (100/1), On Demand (100/1), Tahira (100/1), Montana Belle (100/1), Groovejet (100/1)

Verdict

Willie Mullins landed the inaugural running of this race with Limini last year and he boasts an enviable hand in the shape of the unexposed trio Airlie Beach, Let's Dance and Asthuria. The first two named look particularly exciting but, with the yard not firing as expected this week, it may pay to take them on with LA BAGUE AU ROI. She's charge has been foot-perfect over hurdles so far and has been purposely freshened up by a break, so a big run is anticipated on decent ground which will play her to strengths. If there is any each-way value it could lie with smart Flat performer Toe The Line who is improving with each run over timber.
