Forecasts

Lagostovegas (11/8), Prince Charmin' (11/2), Turasoir (11/2), Magna Cartor (13/2), Shinghari (8/1), Rubenesque (10/1), Water Sprite (11/1), Do Try Dolly (14/1), Jazz Ranger (14/1), Hudson's Bay (20/1), Eight And Bob (20/1), Lady Shaana (33/1), Spirit Of The Rain (50/1), Torquay (66/1)

Verdict

Lagostovegas was disappointing on sole outing over timber since joining the ranks at Closutton but, back on the Flat, she's rated to have a fair crack at this prize and is respected. Prince Charmin' and Jazz Ranger enter calculations but a more likely scorer might be WATER SPRITE, a winner at Galway around this time last year and three-time Flat winner. This trip should be more in his wheelhouse than the one he tackled recently at Ballinrobe on his Flat return. Rubenesque ran well here earlier this week and, if taking his chance from the same mark over a longer trip, has a good chance of building on that.
  1. Water Sprite
  2. Prince Charmin'
  3. Rubenesque
