Forecasts

Cracking Smart (13/8), Jetz (5/2), On Raglan Road (7/2), Luso Benny (10/1), Elusive Exclusive (10/1), Narcissistic (14/1), Oath Breaker (20/1), Dayna Moss (33/1), Trump Sixteen (33/1), Grinditout (33/1), Youandiwillfly (50/1), Little Chilli (66/1)

Verdict

Cracking Smart ran a fine race over hurdles at Naas in February and merits plenty of respect now switching to this sphere with an excellent jockey booked. Narcissistic was disappointing on his only outing for Gordon Elliott but that can be forgiven and he might leave it behind now returning for his new handler a year stronger. Jetz and Elusive Exclusive are also worth mentioning but it is hard to get away from the newcomer ON RAGLAN ROAD for the champion trainer. A son of Walk In The Park, he wasn't cheap to acquire and may satisfy his powerful owners by making a winning start.
  1. On Raglan Road
