Forecast

Powerful Symbol (15/8), Hollow Blue Sky (3/1), Drumviredy (3/1), Paddy The Oscar (13/2), Sunny Ledgend (17/2), Fort Smith (25/1)

Verdict
DRUMVIREDY represents a yard in form and he is taken to brush aside his latest rise in the weights in this modest company. Hollow Blue Sky was no match for the selection last time out, but he makes more appeal as a threat than Sunny Legend, who is capable on his day but still looks a tad high in the weights just now. Fort Smith is a risky option but may be best of the rest. 1. Drumviredy 2. Hollow Blue Sky 3. Sunny Ledgend
