Forecast

Meticulous (1/2), Jon Ess (9/2), Coolbane Boy (11/2), Gallowglass (10/1), Good Reception (12/1), Make Good (16/1), Ballinruddy (20/1), Dunbar (33/1), Royal Admiral (40/1), Gracefull Grace (66/1), Moonlight Symphony (66/1), Getaway Jewel (100/1), Le Pogues Storm (150/1), Scarlet Leader (150/1), Bally Upper (200/1), Different Beat (200/1), Getaway Glenda (200/1), Cashins Hill (200/1)

Verdict
Multiple Flat winner Jon Ess is a reliable sort in this sphere and should give an honest account; while Dunbar and Royal Admiral are a pair that could leave their mark in time too. The bumper/novice hurdles form of METICULOUS however stands out clearly and Joseph O'Brien's well-bred son of Fame And Glory looks to have been found an ideal springboard with the yard in cracking form. He's the clear pick.
