Forecast

Ma Fee Heela (6/1), Russian Realm (7/1), Golden Pearl (8/1), Have A Nice Day (8/1), St Brelades Bay (8/1), Ice Cold In Alex (8/1), Enter The Red (9/1), Fit For Function (10/1), Sahreej (12/1), Ducky Mallon (14/1), Tookiedoo (16/1), Red Sabor (16/1), Escondida (16/1), Ken's Sam's (25/1)

Verdict
RUSSIAN REALM gets the nod here after a fine effort last time out at Chester, his trainer has elected to come across this Irish Sea and has made a shrewd move in securing the services of Billy Lee for this contest. Give that he is 7lb below his last winning mark, there's every chance the selection is ready to go in again. Next best might be Golden Pearl, who recorded a good second behind Orangey Red last time at Listowel. That rival has franked the form by winning again since and no shock if the Halford inmate runs a big race. Have A Nice Day, Ma Fee Heela and Ice Cold In Alex are others worth considering.
  1. Russian Realm
  2. Golden Pearl
