Forecast

Captain Teemo (2/1), Karezak (9/4), Kabjoy (13/2), Ebadani (7/1), Great Explorer (9/1), Truthwillsetufree (12/1), Encrypted Message (20/1), News At Six (20/1), Bogardus (40/1)

In depth

Verdict

Great Explorer has a long absence to overcome but won't mind the ground nor will Ebadani, who was caught in the closing stages over an extra furlong at Tipperary. Truthwillsetufree hasn't won for two years but will have found 1m2f too short when odds-on at Sligo last time. Kabjoy finally came good at Limerick after several near misses but it's CAPTAIN TEEMO who looks the one to be on. He was making his handicap debut and racing over this trip for the first time when impressing at Fairyhouse and can complete a double despite an 8lb rise. News At Six has his first start in a handicap and there should be more to come from him.
