Forecasts

Littlestickarubarb (2/1), Bee A Beneficiary (9/4), Barna Venture (5/1), Crazyheart (6/1), Seskin Flyer (7/1), Shrewdoperator (7/1), Leap Dearg (12/1), Cap'n (12/1)

Verdict

Not easy ruling anything out of this race. Crazyheart drops in distance and should give a solid account despite a career-high mark but the nod sits with model of consistency LITTLESTICKARUBARB. She's run well all three starts over fences and might be up to doubling her tally now. Last year's winner Shrewdoperator showed a bit more at Navan last time and might have a challenge in him while Barna Venture can go well back over fences with a recent pipe-opener to assist.
