THAT'S LIFEBUOY has made a promising start to her career over fences, again going down only narrowly at Tramore last month, so she has to be considered the one to beat. There are plenty of dangers though, with Wa Wa and Gelee Blanche particularly feared.

Betting Forecast

9/1 Bold Emperor (Ire), 33/1 Rebel Waltz (Ire), 7/1 Gelee Blanche (Fr), 22/1 Battle Of Benburb (Ire), 7/2 That's Lifebuoy (Ire), 6/1 Wa Wa (Ire), 14/1 Imperial Sachin's (Ire), 28/1 First Touch (Ire), 14/1 Rocky's Howya (Ire), 12/1 An Taibhse (Ire), 28/1 Courting Flow (Ire)
