Forecast

Alpha Centauri (8/11), Actress (9/4), Gasta (7/1), Shapes (8/1), Moonlight Bay (8/1), Camacho Dancer (66/1)

Verdict
There didn't appear to be any fluke about the way in which ALPHA CENTAURI defeated Actress here on debut. The latter has since come out and won over 5f at the Curragh but there is no reason to abandon the Harrington runner for now, with likely improvement forthcoming from her too. Moonlight Bay is another likely to improve having her maiden here over 5f while the newcomer Gasta is respected given her trainer elects to start in this company.
  1. Alpha Centauri
  2. Actress
  3. Moonlight Bay
