Forecast

Collooney (8/15), Not So Sleepy (7/4), Point Taken (9/1), Powerful Society (16/1), Hymn And A Prayer (20/1), Power Surge (33/1), Just Go For It (66/1), Minnie Escape (100/1), Ruby Taylor (150/1), Fingal Girl (150/1), Broke Away (200/1)

Verdict

There are only two serious contenders in this contest. Not So Sleepy has proved himself a capable middle-distance handicapper on the Flat where an official rating of 92 makes him a tough horse to discount in receipt of his allowance. However, he was too keen on his hurdling debut and, with a tongue-tie absent, the absence of an aid for the jockey is a concern along with the fact he is winless since June 2017. With that in mind Bangor winnerCOLLOONEY justifies getting the verdict as his previous close second to Brandon Castle looks outstanding given that rival's exploits since.
  1. Collooney
  2. Not So Sleepy
  3. Hymn And A Prayer
