Betting

Forecast

Empire State (4/6), Mistress Of Venice (5/2), Nicaro (5/1), Sneaky Snooze (8/1), From Glen To Glen (16/1), Baile An Roba (50/1), Pretty Smart (66/1), Theweehard (66/1)

Verdict

The Aidan O'Brien yard have a 25% strike rate in the last three years at this track, this month and his EMPIRE STATE can get off the mark at the seventh time of asking for connections following up on a respectable fourth of 20 at Naas last month. Mistress Of Venice ran a solid race on return from a 16-month break at Navan last month and looks capable of hitting the frame here along with the Fozzy Stack-trained Nicaro.
