Forecasts

Moonlight Escape (11/8), Ballinlina Boy (4/1), Turanga Lilly (9/2), Sally Park (7/1), Peace Party (8/1), No Admission (20/1), Ifandbutwhen (20/1), Quay Witness (33/1)

Verdict

With no form to go on, punters must look elsewhere for clues in the finale. Gordon Elliott runs two likely sorts and it seems logical to assume that Nina Carberry's mount MOONLIGHT ESCAPE has a strong chance. The jockey returned to action in winning style this week and could add to her tally here. Turanga Lilly also has plenty going for her on paper and should run well. The market will be key, with Ifandbutwhen another potentially worth looking out for.
  1. Moonlight Escape
