Forecast

Stratum (1/2), Gagas Horse (5/1), Youghal By The Sea (11/2), Pass Hymn (12/1), The Major General (12/1), Tizme (33/1), Fair Play To You (33/1), Bold Frost (50/1), Harvey Wallbanger (66/1), Lakeside Pearl (66/1), Divin Desir (100/1), Paulie C (100/1)

Verdict
The ex-John Gosden runner Stratum was picked up for decent money by connections and is sure to be popular on debut for Mullins/Walsh. His Flat exploits entitle him to plenty respect and he's certain to be well schooled, but his price will surely reflect all of that. YOUGHAL BY THE SEA showed a really good attitude to win his bumper at Bellewstown last month and could be capable of a strong showing now meeting flights for the first time and is taken to give the likely favourite something to think about. Gagas Horse and The Major General, somewhat unlucky last time, are others to be noted.
  1. Youghal By The Sea
  2. Stratum
  3. The Major General
