Forecast

Up For Discussion (1/2), Floramar (4/1), June Carter (10/1), Secret Approach (12/1), Baby Moon (16/1), Phantasmo (20/1), De Danu's Bach (20/1), Loch Luatha (25/1), Din Diddle Inn (25/1), Kittyhawkkay (33/1)

Verdict
The lack of a recognised pace-maker here could make for a muddling contest in the early stages. There could be some each-way value on offer here with Secret Approach who was fourth of 14 on soft to heavy ground last month. The race could end up being a duel between the Ruby Walsh ridden Floramar and UP FOR DISCUSSION beaten favourite last time out in the McManus colours.
