Forecast

Bayan (7/2), Nelson Road (4/1), Highland Fling (9/2), Mr Everest (11/2), Touch Of Gold (7/1), Face Value (8/1), Vigil (10/1), Oiche Mhaith Boy (14/1)

Verdict

Bayan ran a nice race behind Snow Falcon at Killarney recently and is respected here racing from just 2lb higher in the handicap, with his trainer having won yesterday's feature event. The likes of Face Value and Touch Of Gold could get involved if in the correct mood while Oiche Mhaith Boy will relish these conditions if fit enough to do so and has three-times won over this sort of trip on heavy ground. HIGHLAND FLING ran a blinder at Galway last month over this trip on his return to the Flat, he's 2lb higher here but has run well at the Curragh over shorter since and could grab this prize.
  1. Highland Fling
  2. Bayan
