Forecasts

Shek O Lad (11/4), Ashjan (7/2), Kilkeaskins First (5/1), Sports Barrow (11/2), Ardview Boy (6/1), Island Villa (10/1), Queen Khaleesi (14/1), Safe Home (14/1), Better Back Bob (16/1), Captains And Kings (16/1), Up The Town (16/1), Clonleney (20/1), Outofcologne (20/1), Sweet Little Lies (20/1), Canova (25/1), Olympic Queen (50/1)

Verdict

Not many of these come here in great form so it looks a decent chance for SHEK O LAD to come out on top. He ran well earlier in the week and connections are getting him out quickly from the same handicap mark here. He can get the better of Ardview Boy, who may have to settle for second best again, and top weight Sports Barrow who finds himself in calmer waters here. Island Villa would be of interest if getting to take his chance.
  1. Shek O Lad
