Forecasts

Boston Spray (9/4), Frankiefiveangels (9/4), Court Tycoon (11/4), Earthly Reason (6/1), Eagle Ridge (10/1), Creadan Grae (12/1), Mcgroarty (14/1), Meandt (16/1), Allannahs Gold (16/1), Needie (20/1), Monsieur Bagot (25/1), Go Halainn (33/1), Garryricken Gamble (50/1)

Verdict

The bumper COURT TYCOON contested on debut looks a decent enough event and he can register his first success at the second time of asking in this concluding event. The selection finished fifth on that occasion and is taken to get the better of Clonmel maiden hurdle second Earthly Reason who should appreciate the step up in trip while Frankiefiveangels and rules debutant Boston Spray are others to note.
  1. Court Tycoon
  2. Earthly Reason
  3. Frankiefiveangels
