Forecast

Winter Magic (4/1), Black Zero (5/1), New Kid In Town (5/1), Toushan (5/1), Samanntom (8/1), Draycott Place (8/1), Kilcarry Bridge (10/1), Westerners Son (12/1), Caolaneoin (14/1), Fine Theatre (16/1)

Verdict
With plenty of contenders who like to race on or near the pace here it may pay to side with confirmed stayer WINTER MAGIC. The selection has won over as far as 3m1f in the past and proved his liking for this track with finishing third here last month under today's jockey. Draycott Place ran well prior to coming down when last seen out in a chase at Thurles last month while another last time out faller New Kid In Town can claim third in what looks a competitive renewal of this Grade B contest.
