Forecast

Cudgel (9/4), Achill Road Boy (16/5), Classical Sound (7/2), The Very Thing (7/1), The Mayne Man (8/1), Border Victor (12/1), Dorothy's Flame (28/1)

Verdict

A weak handicap hurdle that could go the way of ACHILL ROAD BOY, who has a fitness edge over most and, while below form the last twice, might be perked up by the refitting of blinkers. The Very Thing and Cudgel ran well on their latest outing but aren't sure to be fit for their respective return.

  1. ACHILL ROAD BOY (IRE)
  2. THE VERY THING (IRE)
  3. CUDGEL
