Betting

Forecast

Calum Gilhooley (6/5), Eye Of An Eagle (4/1), The Bees Knees (5/1), Ultragold (13/2), Dont Go Gentle (16/1), Oscars Moonshine (16/1), Presenting Yeats (20/1), Majestic Merlin (33/1), Jack Thunder (66/1), Sakhee's Conquest (250/1), Ivorsalegend (300/1)

Verdict

CALUM GILHOOLEY opened his account over hurdles in good style here 3 weeks ago and can follow up under a penalty with this shorter trip unlikely to be a problem. Presenting Yeats struck in a bumper last time and is bred for this game, so certainly couldn't be ruled out. Dont Go Gentle and The Bees Knees are a couple of the others to note.

  1. CALUM GILHOOLEY (IRE)
  2. PRESENTING YEATS (IRE)
  3. DONT GO GENTLE (IRE)
