Forecasts

Aared (9/4), Total Demolition (5/2), Ezanak (3/1), New Direction (4/1), Song Of Namibia (5/1), Duchessofflorence (10/1), Keble (20/1), Our Channel (25/1)

Verdict

New Direction found his progress was checked last time at the Curragh and he will have to answer further questions if firm remains in the going description this time. Aared produced a career-best on his reappearance when winning at Navan but hasn't been to repeat in two runs since. Ezanak was behind him then but is now 9lb better off any may reverse those placing. SONG OF NAMIBIA was a good winner at Limerick on penultimate start and might have found the longer trip/soft ground to be no help since at the Curragh. With first-time cheekpieces here, Ger Lyons' charge can get back on track.
  1. Song Of Namibia
  2. Ezanak
  3. Aared
