Forecast

Dara Tango (7/4), Get Out Of Jail (11/2), Greanta (7/1), Lord Erskine (10/1), Dixie Highway (10/1), Athenry Boy (10/1), Mistiness (14/1), Nannys Well (16/1), Best Not Argue (16/1), Rolanna (16/1), Shoofly (16/1), Shamar (16/1), Kates Doll (33/1), Muroor (50/1), Mr Morocco (50/1)

Verdict
A race here where it has been advantageous to be racing in mid-division, historically. That does not rule out the likes of Greanta, Shoofly or Mistiness who are expected to be up with the pace early on. Athenry Boy, up 6lb for win but has softer ground again today, while preference is for, DARA TANGO, a winner at the Galway festival in a 9k handicap on soft/heavy ground.
  1. Dara Tango
  2. Athenry Boy
  3. Mistiness
