Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

THE CATHAL DON has set a solid platform over hurdles (much better than result last time) and is the type to make a better chaser, so a chance is taken on him to make a winning chasing debut at the possible excuse of his stablemate Eagle Moon, who showed something to work on when debuting in this sphere last time. Dis Donc can't be discounted, either.

Betting Forecast

8/1 Druid's Altar (Ire), 8/1 Arvico Bleu (Ire), 100/1 Getting In Touch (Ire), 10/3 Eagle Moon (Fr), 5/1 The Cathal Don (Ire), 25/1 Galloway Du Lia (Fr), 100/1 All Shell (Ire), 40/1 Bonnie Kellie (Ire)
