Forecast

Roxboro Road (13/8), Chavi Artist (11/2), Flynsini (6/1), Well Joey (7/1), Persian Wind (9/1), Lacken Bridge (10/1), My Manekineko (12/1), Ard Na Carraig (16/1), Archer's Up (18/1)

Verdict

WELL JOEY notched up a hat-trick over fences last year between March and September before pulling up on his final start before a break in October. He showed his well being with a fair performance over hurdles recently at Down Royal and may prove too good for these rivals. Persian Wind was disappointing last time out but if back to his best form then he could give the selection most to do. Flynsini showed he still has relish for chasing when running very well recently at Limerick. With some luck, he has excellent each-way claims at the very least.
  1. Well Joey
  2. Persian Wind
  3. Flynsini
