Forecast

Acapulco (11/8), Ardhoomey (7/2), Primo Uomo (6/1), Encore d'Or (8/1), Sir Robert Cheval (10/1), Willytheconqueror (12/1), Monsieur Joe (14/1), Just Glamorous (14/1), Ostatnia (20/1), Spirit Quartz (33/1), Rural Celebration (33/1), Shrill (33/1)

Verdict
A race that seems to revolve the talented ACAPULCO, her supreme 2yo form would entitle her to win this contest readily, but she has not been without problems since. She's having her first start since leaving Wesley Ward to join the Ballydoyle team and is in foal to Galileo. Getting weight from her chief rivals, she should take plenty beating in this contest. Group 2 winner Ardhoomey looks the principle danger, having run an excellent race over this trip at Navan on reappearance, form that also brings Spirit Quartz and Primo Uomo into the mix. Support for Encore d'Or or Willytheconqueror would be interesting while Just Glamourous could be a player if regaining the form of last summer.
