Betting

Forecast

Game Puppeteer (5/2), Miracle Cure (11/2), Athloman Cottage (7/1), Ayelya (7/1), Emerald Honours (8/1), Boytonrath (11/1), Masterchippy (12/1), Oromo (12/1), Kalanisi King (14/1), Sparkalark (16/1), Brog Deas Nua (16/1), Hugh Divots (20/1), Malicious Intent (25/1), Safe Home (25/1), Lough Derg Lyric (25/1), Presenting Champ (25/1), Coral Pearl (33/1), Bobby Boucher (33/1), Too Wild For Der (66/1)

Verdict

Miracle Cure, Ayela and Bobby Boucher could be vying for the lead here in the early stages of the race, Emerald Honours and Brog Deas Nua in behind. Boytonrth, who has the assistance of Jockey Davy Russell and Game Pupeteer, second of 11, not beaten far here on Thursday, make the shortlist but preference is for ATHLOMAN COTTAGE, who hinted at a return to form last time out.
