Verdict

This will take very little winning so don't be surprised by a big run from The Horsechesnut, who was bought after landing a point-to-point at Dromahane in December. Bossy Beccy and Redkalani have shown very moderate form and though Dreamisi will probably start a short-priced favourite after a decent debut in a slowly-run race at Sedgefield there may be better value elsewhere. Of the newcomers, ANIKNAM catches the eye on breeding as he's a half-brother to a winning bumper in France so he's given the nod to make a winning start.
