Forecasts

Rukwa (13/8), Bravantina (5/1), Goodtimes Badtimes (7/1), Ballycrystal (8/1), Dancing Doug (8/1), Mcgarry (10/1), Izzy's Champion (14/1), Kitty's Cove (16/1), Kilcaragh Boy (20/1), Savoy Court (20/1), Fernhill Lad (28/1), Baby Jane (40/1), Bells Of Barnack (50/1)

Verdict

The fact RUKWA has won over 2m on the Flat suggests this sort of trip could be within range over hurdles so he gets the nod to build on his encouraging Wetherby second. Kitty's Cove has won a couple of times on the Flat and rates a possible improver now handicapping for the first time over hurdles. McGarry would also come into it if the betting vibes are strong.
