Forecast

The Very Man (5/4), Unexcepted (11/8), Jason The Militant (6/1), Bentham (11/1), Even Flight (20/1), Three Jacks (33/1), Barnaviddaun (50/1), Hell On Earth (50/1), Sois Gentil (100/1), All The Mollies (100/1), Creggs Star (100/1)

Verdict
The trainer and jockey combination of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell can get off the mark over hurdles with THE VERY MAN at the second time of asking here. The Gigginstown House Stud-owned gelding held every chance when coming down at the last on hurdling debut at Punchestown last month and can find the winning thread here holding off the attentions of the £200,000 J P McManus-owned Unexpected who makes his Irish debut for trainer Willie Mullins. Jason The Militant was last seen finishing third of 14 behind Envoi Allen in a bumper here in December over 2m on good ground can grab a place.
  1. The Very Man
  2. Unexcepted
