Forecasts

Felix Desjy (2/7), Licklighter (5/1), Gigiplan Two Seven (10/1), Leave Your Mark (12/1), Chavi Artist (25/1), Joe The Crow (25/1), Amerijano (40/1), Good Luck Hope (50/1), The Reaping Race (50/1), Makka Pakka (66/1), Dragon Houdini (100/1), Shantou Warrior (100/1), Owl Creek Bridge (100/1), Castle Valley (100/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained FELIX DESJY should get favourite backers off to a winning start here on hurdling debut. The five-year-old was thought highly enough of to take his chance in the Cheltenham and Punchestown bumpers and can take the opener from likely dangers, the consistent Licklighter, the J P McManus-owned, Leave Your Mark and the Martin Brassil-trained Gigiplan Two Seven.
