Forecasts

Zanavi (4/5), Awkwafina (10/3), Iberia (4/1), Scholastic (5/1), Rock Chica (7/1), Behind The Wall (50/1), Man River (150/1), Self Assessed (400/1)

Verdict

ZANAVI was a big price but left his hurdling debut form well behind when running out a most impressive winner at Fairyhouse just under 3 weeks ago. He's clearly open to further progress and should take all the beating under a penalty. Scholastic's progress seems to have stalled a bit over timber but she looks the main threat on paper, ahead of Iberia.
