Forecasts

Gun Merchant (4/1), Kilkishen (4/1), Cooldine Bog (7/1), Flooring Porter (15/2), Roi De Dubai (8/1), Global Racing (8/1), Henry Brown (10/1), Cusp Of Carabelli (11/1), Mon Storm (16/1), Metal Man (25/1), Mister Eddman (25/1), Dawn Raider (33/1), Venezia (40/1)

Verdict

Gun Merchant and Metal Man are entitled to consideration for the in-form Gordon Elliott operation while Global Racing shaped with a good deal of promise on comeback at Kilbeggan and so joins Kilkishen (second last two starts) on the shortlist. Flooring Porter is up 3lb for a runner-up finish at Navan 155 days ago but should be suited on this sounder surface. ROI DE DUBAI knows how to win and was a pleasing second on his recent comeback at Bellewstown. He, too, is 3lb higher today but promises to be suited over this longer journey and may provide this trainer/jockey/owner combe with a second hurdles winner of the month.
  1. Roi De Dubai
  2. Flooring Porter
  3. Gun Merchant
