Forecast

Scheu Time (9/4), Ballyegan Hero (7/2), Smithscorner (5/1), Reach Up (7/1), Stormey (8/1), Act In Time (8/1), Ar Eagla Na Heagla (9/1), Arch Melody (10/1), Veneziano Springs (12/1), Rocky Court (14/1), Whatsinthecorner (14/1)

Verdict

SCHEU TIME wasn't disgraced on his second start over fences when fifth in a Grade 3 at Galway 3 weeks ago and his opening mark in this sphere looks a fair one. Smithscorner arrives on the back of a career-best win at Galway and is next best ahead of Stormey.
