Betting

Forecast

Discordantly (6/4), Dortmund Park (2/1), Turbojet (5/1), Half The Odds (9/1), Hotel Du Nord (12/1), Ask Cory (25/1), Chesterville (66/1)

Verdict
Given his training problems it is possibly not a great idea to take too short a price about him on his second appearance over fences but DORTMUND PARK certainly is the class horse in the line-up and even if showing half the ability he had over hurdles then he will prove hard to beat. His first chase effort was underwhelming but he can progress. Discordantly needs to bounce back from a below par run last time but showed he had ability when looking in a good position when falling on his penultimate start at Punchestown. It is possible Ask Cory has been freshened up with a few spins over hurdles and returns to fences here having shown some ability in the past.
  1. Dortmund Park
  2. Discordantly
  3. Ask Cory
