Betting

Forecast

Woodbrook Boy (3/1), Court Tycoon (3/1), My Manekineko (10/3), Gold Seal (6/1), Rocky Court (8/1), Time For Mabel (17/2), Dasmyhoss (12/1), Inishbel (16/1)

Verdict

WOODBROOK BOY produced an excellent performance at Tramore last month to win on only his fourth attempt over fences and while up six pounds in the handicap there could be more to come from the gelding with a decent apprentice taking a few pounds of his back. Good ground is the key and connections will be hoping the rain stays away. My Manekineko rolled back the years to run very well in a Grade 3 contest at Galway last time out. A reproduction of that effort should see him run well and he looks reasonably handicapped at present. Inishbel has some talent and will be better for her recent run at Downpatrick.
