Forecast

Zola (1/1), Mister Fogpatches (7/2), Castello Sforza (4/1), Awbeg Prince (10/1), Cloudybackwest (12/1), Rocks Of Bawnree (16/1), Bere Haven (50/1), The Sneaky Punter (50/1), Singirishmansing (66/1), Time Won't Wait (66/1)

Verdict
ZOLA is the clear form pick here on her hurdles debut and can land this before going on to contest better races for her top trainer. She comfortably won at Sligo last time out and if repeating that then she will prove very difficult to pass. Cloudybackwest can not be backed with much confidence but he has been placed at this level and could do so again. Castello Sforza has decent bumper form in the distant past and while he obviously has ability has obviously had problems. He should, however, be able to land a place finish at the very worst.
  1. Zola
  2. Cloudybackwest
  3. Castello Sforza
