Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

This is likely to be fought out by bumper winners GRAND BORNAND and Thedevilscoachman, who could both turn into above-average types in this discipline. The first-named is comfortably preferred debuting for Willie Mullins, while point winner Carrolls Cottage isn't completely ruled out in an interesting maiden hurdle.

Betting Forecast

6/4 Grand Bornand (Fr), 6/1 Takarengo (Ire), 7/2 Thedevilscoachman (Ire), 7/1 Carrolls Cottage (Ire), 28/1 Land Jet (Ire), 50/1 Globetrottersivola (Fr), 66/1 Rocky's Howya (Ire), 40/1 Marco Rock (Ire), 50/1 Petite But Willing (Ire), 150/1 Nananinety (Ire), 100/1 Shean Glory (Ire), 66/1 Doubting Thomas (Ire)
