Betting

Forecast

Fully Charged (11/8), Fou Diligence (7/4), Drifting Back (6/1), Chief Of Police (10/1), Memory Tree (16/1), Silk Worm (20/1), Equilibrium (20/1), Soi Cowboy (25/1), Cloudybackwest (33/1), Castlegrange (66/1), Part Time Affair (66/1)

Verdict
FULLY CHARGED can build on his pleasing debut over hurdles finishing second of 12 to Alpine Cobra (Fifth of eight in a Grade 2 contest here yesterday) at Punchestown last month to land the spoils in this contest at the expense of the Willie Mullins-trained Equilibrium who is better than her last effort suggests. The solid and consistent Fou Diligence in first-time cheekpieces can battle for the minor honours with the Liz Doyle-trained Silk Worm and Part Time Affair for trainer Gordon Elliott.
