Betting

Forecast

Golden Spell (11/4), Deep Breath (7/2), Navajo Dreamer (9/2), War Hero (9/2), Summerseat Mist (9/1), Ballot Box (10/1), Rhythm Of Love (10/1), Sandbanks Road (33/1)

Verdict
A tough field to assess given these are running in a handicap for the first time. It is clear that Golden Spell looks talented after her win at Bellewstown last time out by the daughter of Al Kazeem in being asked a big question giving away so much weight in this. She should still give a decent account of herself but once-raced winner DEEP BREATH looks to have been more leniently judged after victory over this trip at Fairyhouse and may be the one to take advantage for a trainer in pleasing form. Navajo Dreamer is not passed over easily while Summerseat Mist could easily improve and contend here.
