Forecast

You Raised Me Up (7/4), Golazo (10/3), Arthur's Quay (9/2), West Cork Wildway (6/1), Randalls Ur Poet (7/1), Gangsters Paradise (25/1), Baily Thunder (25/1), Drifting Back (25/1), The Big Galloper (33/1), Moscowsowhat (50/1), College Field (66/1), Empirion (100/1), Shaunna's Gift (100/1), Chesterville (100/1)

Verdict
Perennial champion trainer Willie Mullins has a 38 per cent strike rate here in 2019 and his GOLAZO looks to have an excellent chance to go one better than when second on his hurdles debut at Cork in July. The biggest threat could prove to be fellow bumper winner You Raised Me Up on hurdles bow; his dam won four times over obstacles. Best of the rest could well prove to be Arthur's Quay who looked a gelding of potential when last seen in this his fourth start.
  1. Golazo
  2. You Raised Me Up
  3. Arthur's Quay
