Forecast

Hand In My Pocket (8/13), Mary Of De Sorrows (10/3), Flamin Aimee (4/1), Coosan Clover (9/2), Little Lady Lu (6/1), Ballela Storm (22/1), Upourdat (25/1), Esthers Marvel (33/1), Imperial Allure (40/1), Go On Now (80/1), Twin Bridges (150/1)

Verdict

HAND IN MY POCKET was a fairly useful winner in bumpers and looks ready to open her account over hurdles now she steps up in trip following an encouraging third over 20f at Bellewstown. Mary of De Sorrows arrives on the back of a good third in a Down Royal handicap so is sure to make her presence felt, while Flamin Aimee is another well worth considering as she tackles 3m for the first time.
