Forecasts

Agrimony (5/6), Rekero (7/2), Emporio (4/1), County Wicklow (5/1), Too Nice (5/1), Probe (6/1), Meishar (16/1), Latin Fury (16/1), Tall Story (28/1), Pale Ale (33/1), Great Realisation (40/1), Simply Sideways (50/1), Lusaka (66/1), Hesamanofhisword (80/1), Old Tom Higgins (100/1), Run The Jewels (100/1), Rockfield Westie (200/1), Zach Attack (300/1), Civil Dawn (300/1)

Verdict

The market should reveal plenty here but AGRIMONY sets a decent standard on form so gets the vote on the back of his excellent Curragh second. Joseph O'Brien's newcomer Rekero rates a big danger, especially if the market speaks in his favour, with County Wicklow sure to be on the premises too if as expected building on his debut Dundalk third.

  1. AGRIMONY
  2. REKERO (IRE)
