Forecasts

Border Control (7/4), Court Tycoon (9/4), Caliption (9/2), Cooldine Bog (9/1), Shetland Bus (12/1), Juliespaddockwalk (20/1), Famous Day (25/1), Pottsie (25/1), Don Elias (33/1), Artic Quest (40/1), Bollmann Lady (50/1), Duhallow Paddy (50/1), Power Of Faith (50/1), Knock On Steel (66/1), Shimmer And Shine (100/1), Rock On Aussie (100/1), Ochto Milano (100/1)

Verdict

Trainer Gordon Elliott immediately switches stable newcomer CALIPTION back to hurdles following a 10L defeat on stable debut over fences at Downpatrick last month. The six-year-old may only have the relatively inconsistent Border Control to beat here while the Peter Fahey-trained Court Tycoon and Andrew Slattery's Cooldine Bog are open to improve on their most recent starts and battle it out for the remaining place.
