Forecasts

Special Ted (4/5), Tower Bridge (7/4), State Of Nirvana (5/2), Border Control (7/1), Tangerine (20/1), Just Another Lady (20/1), Reach Up (25/1), Youghal By The Sea (25/1), Gallowglass (25/1), Kosovo (33/1), London To York (33/1), Scarlet Blue (33/1), Gwanyalegend (33/1)

Verdict

It may well pay to side with those with previous racecourse experience in the field and preference is for STATE OF NIRVANA. This filly ran well on debut at Punchestown last month and can put a 7lb allowance to good use in this race and win at the second time of asking. Special Ted probably sets the form standard and could be next best, ahead of Tower Bridge, who was beaten into fourth in a blanket finish on his own debut at Punchestown.
  1. State Of Nirvana
