Betting

Forecast

Korbous (3/1), Reckless Lad (4/1), Doc Holliday (7/1), Teocht (7/1), Tahaf (8/1), Knights Templar (9/1), Golden Shoe (14/1), Hasanour (14/1), Shabra Emperor (14/1), Balmont Belle (16/1)

Verdict

Tahaf gained his first success when dropping back to this trip at Bellewstown and there should be more to come, a remark that also applies to Korbous who is another with a penalty for last week's success over the course and distance. The latter is finally getting his act together and should be in the frame but RECKLESS LAD is given another chance to shine over a mile after running well in handicaps over 7f including here last week. Knights Templar last won a race over this track and trip a year ago and he's now 13lb higher though that didn't prevent an excellent run behind In Salutem at Limerick last time.
