Forecasts

Paper Lantern (7/4), Gabrielleamee (7/1), Flynsini (10/1), Shuil Teacht Aniar (12/1), Willow Grange (12/1), Boss Croaker (12/1), Dinnie's Vinnie (14/1), Minmore Oscar (14/1), Black Jewel (14/1), Fairymount Boy (16/1), Taboo (16/1), Witness Of Fashion (20/1), Ancient Highway (25/1), Cherryantor (33/1)

Verdict

PAPER LANTERN is the form pick despite rising 4lb for Saturday's win at Fairyhouse. He's previously run well as runner-up over this trip at the same venue and with doubts over plenty of his rivals in this field, is given a fair chance of following up. Plenty of the remainder have questions to answer, Willow Grange has some decent efforts of late but they've come at shorter trips while Gabrielleamee is dropping to a hand mark but would appeal more as a place prospect. Fairymount Boy is making his handicap bow and, with a handy 5lb claimed off his back, should be monitored in the market. Witness Of Fashion's form around this time last year gives him a sound claim on rating following a recent blow out at Down Royal. 1. Paper Lantern 2. Witness Of Fashion 3. Gabrielleamee
