Forecasts

Foxrock (2/5), On The Fringe (4/1), Staker Wallace (5/1), Salsify (16/1), Wish Ye Didnt (16/1), Aughnacurraveel (20/1), Need To Know (25/1), Quiet Account (33/1), Pointview Gale (50/1), Harry The Lemmon (100/1)

Verdict

The market is likely to suggest this is between On The Fringe and FOXROCK but there are some dangers lurking in the pack. The former won at the spring festivals in great style a year ago and can be expected back at Cheltenham next month, with some big targets ahead however it will be no surprise should he need this run. Foxrock on the other hand isn't eligible for Cheltenham and, with race fitness and a fair amount of class on his side, he should carry on his winning run. The remaining Enda Bolger duo of Staker Wallace and Wish Ye Didnt are also interesting, the latter having won in effortless fashion at Punchestown in the spring when last seen. 1. Foxrock 2. Wish Ye Didnt 3. On The Fringe
