Forecasts

Miss Eyecatcher (3/1), White Lilac (4/1), Political Theatre (11/2), Monotype (6/1), Nanny Stone (7/1), Getaway Kid (8/1), Blazes Peg (14/1), Loupgarou (16/1), Rossmore's Pride (16/1), Finnegan's Hollow (20/1), Famous Day (28/1), Molten Gold (33/1), Vodka Society (33/1), Lough Derg Lyric (50/1), Legal Lord (66/1), Dry Run (100/1), Sunken Treasure (100/1)

Verdict

The top three on the card appear to have the best claims here and I take MONOTYPE to come out best. He has tasted success on the Flat at Doncaster and Ffos Las and posted his best effort to date when going down by 4½L to Crossed My Mind here most recently. Finnegan's Hollow was 3½L back in third that day and should again run well but I think the pair will be split by Miss Eyecatcher, who may have found the trip too far last time after posting two good efforts over a shorter trip.
  1. Monotype
  2. Miss Eyecatcher
  3. Finnegan's Hollow
