Forecast

Gone Racing (3/1), Yug (11/2), Maria Francesca (13/2), Boro Melody (13/2), Shedding (10/1), Caddy Shack (11/1), Nodoubtaboutthat (11/1), Aunt Eileen (12/1), Gotta Getaway (16/1), Ellaat (16/1), Faerie Laws (16/1), Headline Joe (16/1), Oldcastle (20/1), Gragara Tara (33/1), Rockview Emperor (40/1), U S Navy Seal (66/1)

Verdict
Difficult to be confident about any of this contestants and it may to side with MARIA FRANCESA who has plenty of experience over hurdles and shown in her last two appearances at Tipperary and Bellewstown that she is capable of winning a race and should appreciate this step back in trip. Gone Racing ran well enough on his handicap debut at Kilbeggan last month to suggest there is a race to be won with him and he is open to improvement. Caddy Shack is not the most consistent or well handicapped mare but given the level of opposition she is hard to write off.
