Forecasts

Black Samurai (5/1), Father Jed (5/1), I'm Not Alone (6/1), Northern Love (8/1), Railway Muice (8/1), Gold Sun (17/2), Crimson Chief (10/1), Ocean Glandore (10/1), Back On The Bridle (10/1), Something Sweet (11/1), Dundeedy Lad (12/1), Eric Carmen (14/1), Mahler Of Autumn (16/1), Capture The Drama (20/1), Quill Road (50/1)

Verdict

FATHER JED got right back on track when runner-up over hurdles at Ballinrobe last week and is fancied to translate that form to fences now off an attractive-looking mark. Top-weight Black Samurai arrives in very good order and is next on the list, although I'm Not Alone seems sure to have a say too despite taking a big rise in the weights for her easy Tipperary victory.

  1. FATHER JED (IRE)
  2. BLACK SAMURAI
  3. I'M NOT ALONE (IRE)
