Forecasts

Ornua (11/4), Great Khan (10/3), Lean Araig (5/1), Bay Hill (11/2), Kitten Rock (13/2), Definite Soldier (7/1), King's Song (8/1), Crazyheart (8/1), Dr Mikey (12/1), Crosshue Boy (12/1), Neverushacon (25/1), Fine Theatre (28/1), Na Trachtalai Abu (50/1), Well Joey (66/1)

Verdict

GREAT KHAN would surely have broken his duck over fences at Thurles 3 weeks ago but for a final-fence blunder and compensation will hopefully await. Bay Hill also bounced back to form in one of these contests last time and is a danger, along with Ornua back in calmer waters.

  1. GREAT KHAN (IRE)
  2. BAY HILL (IRE)
  3. ORNUA (IRE)
