Forecast

Mill Quest (10/3), Tara Mia (7/2), Our Rachael (7/1), Tranquil Magic (7/1), Miss Sassie (8/1), Filly Mullins (9/1), Don't Let Go (9/1), Caerleon Kate (12/1), Pat's Pearl (14/1), Samsara (20/1), Dorkas (20/1), Kilkeaskin Molly (25/1), Sinndar Sandy (33/1)

Verdict

MILL QUEST can defy top weight and register her third victory of the summer in this competitive looking mares contest. The selection ran well at Galway recently and looks capable of getting the better of Miss Sassie who has run well off a much higher mark over fences in the recent past. Third place can go the way of Tara Mia who was a handicap debut winner last time and is still unexposed.
