Forecast

Whenthewindblows (3/1), Silent Sun (7/2), Sierra Law (7/1), Lleyton (8/1), Rathnaleen Girl (8/1), Lough Derg Lyric (11/1), Yes Man (16/1), I'm Serious (16/1), Athloman Cottage (20/1), Ali Bin Nayef (20/1), Island Villa (20/1), Brog Deas Nua (20/1), Baron Von Chill (20/1), Profoundly (25/1), Precious Gold (25/1), Bobby Boucher (33/1), Ballylibert (33/1), Turfjager (33/1), Keepbackitoldya (33/1), Our Pocket Rocket (50/1), Jeremys Hope (66/1)

Verdict

A race that could have the lead changing in the early stages, with Baron Von Chill, Turfjager, Brog Deas Nua and Silent Sun, among others willing to lead. At the moment, YES MAN, looks too big in the market and could pay each-way followers in a race where Island Villa, Rathaleen Girl, Silent Sun and Whenthewindblows should all be on the shortlist.
  1. Yes Man
  2. Island Villa
  3. Whenthewindblows
