Forecast

Delayed Eloquence (5/4), White Lilac (9/2), Theatre Dreams (5/1), Grainne's Dream (7/1), Joy's Gift (8/1), Jazz Mine (11/1), Kilbarry Marien (14/1), Around The Pound (20/1), Papal Valley (25/1), Geni Johnson (50/1), Lady Quill (50/1), Clear View (66/1), Ivy Nook (100/1), Saoire's Charm (100/1), Destination Debbie (100/1)

Verdict
Delayed Eloquence sets the standard on form for this but a string of second-placed finishes rather helps to temper enthusiasm. She could once more find at least one too good and that could be the jumping newcomer GRAINNE'S DREAM for the champion trainer. She was a fair Flat winner and could have a race like this at her mercy now. Joy's Gift and Jazz Mine have run well over timber while it will be noted how the returning White Lilac fairs in the market having disappointed supporters earlier in the year at this level.
