Forecast

Pasley (13/8), Oak Park (15/8), Jon Ess (4/1), All Body And Soul (8/1), The Rocking Chair (10/1), Henry Brown (12/1), Rebel Gold (20/1), Whitsunday Islands (20/1), Forty One Winks (25/1), Infuse (40/1), Long March (40/1), L'Un Deux Trois (50/1), Oliver Hardy (80/1), Mezyan (100/1), Bobby Boy (100/1), Mistertommyshelby (100/1), Gendarme (150/1), La Capacite (200/1), More Than One (200/1)

Verdict
OAK PARK can get off the mark for trainer and jockey combination of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell. The Sea The Stars gelding was rated highly enough of the have a run in the Grade 1 Spring Juvenile hurdle at Leopardstown in February. Beaten favourite when last seen in March the four-year-old can get the better of the J P McManus-trained Pasley who is likely to be the biggest danger. Rebel Gold for trainer Thomas Foley looks capable of hitting the frame while the returning Forty One Winks and All Body And Soul on debut for trainer Henry De Bromhead are worthy of further consideration.
