Forecasts

Finian's Oscar (13/8), Let's Dance (3/1), Death Duty (9/2), Bleu Berry (8/1), Bacardys (10/1), Kemboy (14/1), Outspoken (14/1), The Nipper (25/1), Moulin A Vent (33/1), Runfordave (33/1)

Verdict

The unbeaten FINIAN'S OSCAR can register a third success at this level by taking this 2m4f contest for a yard that have saddled two wins already at this meeting. The selection was a winner in Grade 1 company at Aintree last time out and can get the better of Let's Dance who finished runner-up at Fairyhouse earlier this month while Cheltenham disappointments Death Duty and Bacardys are others to take note of in this contest.
  1. Finian's Oscar
