Forecast

Ballyandy (3/1), Movewiththetimes (6/1), Clyne (6/1), William H Bonney (15/2), Wait For Me (8/1), Song Light (14/1), De Name Escapes Me (14/1), Veinard (16/1), Boite (16/1), Gassin Golf (18/1), Beltor (20/1), Zubayr (20/1), Kayf Blanco (25/1), Ballyhill (28/1), Hargam (40/1), Eddiemaurice (66/1)

Verdict
This race presents the usual conundrum for punters, with potential handicap blots in novices Movewiththetimes and Ballyandy taking on some more regular contestants in big-field handicaps. For today, CLYNE gets the vote, as although he receives weight from only one rival, he relishes the forecast conditions and there looks likely to be more to come from him in this sphere. Wait For Me would not be winning out of turn, William H Bonney is much respected, while money for any of the Irish raiders would be very interesting. 1. Clyne 2. William H Bonney 3. Ballyandy
