Forecast

The Chapel Field (6/4), Gunfire Reef (6/1), Crimson Chief (6/1), Golden Glen (7/1), Cousin Pascal (9/1), An Marcach (10/1), Mosstown Miller (10/1), Knockraha Boss (12/1), Elusive Exclusive (16/1), Love N' Peace (16/1), I'm Not Alone (20/1), Dicey (25/1), Bianca Minola (28/1), Southerner (33/1)

Verdict
CRIMSON CHIEF can get off the mark for connections at the 12th time of asking on the Arcadio geldings ninth starts over hurdles. The seven-year-old has been knocking on the door in a number of starts since August and can get the better of the improving Beneficial gelding The Chapel Field who is going for a hat-trick of victories here. The six-year-old may find life tough now racing 14lb higher than his first win at Fairyhouse last month. Golden Glen, a winner over hurdles at Tramore in October, Gunfire Reef for trainer Mags Mullins and Cousin Pascal in first time cheekpieces should not be taken lightly.
  1. Crimson Chief
  2. The Chapel Field
  3. Golden Glen
