Forecast

Tintown Robin (7/2), Rockey Storm (6/1), Bobbythegangster (6/1), Courtin Bb (8/1), Bullowney (11/1), Millen Dollar Man (14/1), Rebel Cry (14/1), Shanroe Society (14/1), Select Opportunity (14/1), Freedom Square (14/1), Royal Roslea (16/1), Aurora's Dream (18/1), Country Capers (20/1), Athloman Cottage (20/1), California Soul (20/1), Steak And Spuds (20/1), Emerald Honours (25/1), Oskar High (25/1), Dontdelay (25/1), Crocosmia (25/1), Kings Mistress (50/1)

Verdict
The ground may play a part here - if the rain stays away, the chances of Bullowney and Tintown Robin would improve considerably, but as it stands preference is for top weight ROCKEY STORM who came back off a break with a good effort at Wexford last time. This step up in trip ought to bring out a bit more improvement and this lightly-raced 7-y-o can take this. Royal Roslea and Rebel Cry are others to consider.
  1. Rockey Storm
  2. Bullowney
  3. Royal Roslea
