Forecast

A Wave Of The Sea (4/5), Laura Bullion (11/4), Kid Curry (6/1), Theatre Of War (8/1), Donnersnstrings (16/1), Cerberus (25/1), Recent Revelations (33/1), Lalipour (50/1), Midnight Geisha (50/1), Scotts Honor (50/1), Ventnor (50/1), Frozen Spring (66/1), Sean Says (100/1), Isosceles (100/1)

Verdict
LAURA BULLION looks the pick in a fairly weak field of three-year-old hurdlers. There was plenty to like about the way she won at Down Royal at the end of August having improved her jumping from her Ballinrobe debut. Best of the rest should be A Wave Of The Sea who was let down by his jumping on his debut coupled with being too far off the pace as they turned for home. he will certainly improve and give the likely favourite most to do. Theatre Of War has been plagued by poor jumping so far in his short hurdling career but if overcoming them he has the ability to run a fair race.
  1. Laura Bullion
  2. A Wave Of The Sea
  3. Theatre Of War
