Forecast

Eimear (10/3), Tiger Twenty Two (5/1), Aero Majestic (8/1), Hello Pilgrim (10/1), Gone Galavanting (10/1), Guttural (10/1), Cloak Of Darkness (12/1), Twilight Girl (14/1), Ocean Glandore (14/1), Aliym (14/1), Mossy White (16/1), Comporta (16/1), Ard Na Carraig (20/1), Da Vinci Rock (20/1), Lord Lariat (20/1), Double Windsor (25/1), Ballybrowney Walk (25/1), Henry Sellers (33/1), Highway Royal (50/1)

Verdict
A chance is taken with the Denis Hogan-trained MOSSY WHITE. The seven-year-old is racing 5lb higher than last winning mark following a win at Thurles in November but has a number of conditions to suit here as the Scorpion gelding attempts to get back to winning ways. The Colin Bowe-trained daughter of Touch Of Land, Hello Pilgrim can build on a win in a Sligo maiden hurdle in August and can give a good account once again along with the likes of Tiger Twenty Two for trainer Gordon Elliott, Ocean Glandore who ran well in defeat when last seen at Kilbeggan in September and Cloak Of Darkness for trainer Paul Nolan.
