Forecasts

Duc D'Allier (5/4), Border Control (6/4), King's War (8/1), Can You Believe It (8/1), Nellie Don It (14/1), Sizing Joshua (16/1), Milomynit (25/1), Presenting Lilly (25/1), Sheldon Cooper (33/1), Jenel (33/1), Elegant Dan (33/1), Analytical Mindset (40/1), Aasleagh Dawn (50/1), Captain Leo (50/1), Harry O (50/1), Indian Music (66/1), Golan Diamond (100/1), Golden Phantom (100/1), Dark Lightning (100/1), Turnpike Thunder (100/1), Rebel Power (100/1)

Verdict

The Joseph O'Brien-trained Border Control is likely to be popular in the market following a promising fourth of 18 behind Black Key in a Listowel maiden hurdle on Monday but DUC D'ALLIER from the Henry De Bromhead yard was showing plenty of spark on his racecourse debut at Punchestown recently to make him a worthy selection here in the opener. Sizing Joshua who is expected to improve and Kings War can battle for the minors here.
  1. Duc D'Allier
  2. Border Control
  3. King's War
