Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

French bumper winner GANAPATHI will likely be tough to beat now setting out for new trainer Willie Mullins. Barney Stinson made a promising start to his career when second over C&D at the start of the month and is the obvious one to give the selection most to think about unless the betting speaks in the favour of Henry de Bromhead newcomer Oryx Hustler.

Betting Forecast

4/6 Ganapathi (Fr), 28/1 Rajsalad (Fr), 11/2 Barney Stinson (Ire), 50/1 Awesome Shirocco (Ire), 33/1 Morph (Ire), 40/1 Double Martini (Ire), 100/1 Walk Alone (Ire), 11/1 Oryx Hustler (Ire), 150/1 Panic Over (Ire), 100/1 Eaton Lady (Ire), 40/1 Loup De Tallane (Fr), 28/1 Howdyalikemenow (Ire), 33/1 Presenting Lad (Ire)
