Forecast

Smugglers Creek (8/11), Peace Officer (6/1), Sally Gap (7/1), Delegating (10/1), Eadaoins Pet (10/1), Calypso Jo (10/1), Hark (14/1), Live Twice (16/1), Vanderbilt (25/1), Dream Invader (33/1), Alpine Pass (33/1), Sheila's Hope (40/1), Bunnie Eyes (66/1), Backstairs Bounder (66/1), For Real (100/1), Sobistabo (150/1), Queen Meave (150/1)

Verdict
SMUGGLERS CREEK improved here recently on his second start, first after being gelded, and just gave best in a decent battle to the line over a mile. The drop in trip ought not to inconvenience him and it won't be a great surprise to find Pat Smullen steering him home in front now. Peace Officer was finishing well in behind him that evening and can threaten once more while Sally Gap is expected to leave previous AW form behind having improved on turf lately. Ex-Kevin Ryan inmate Calypso Jo might be capable of a decent show on debut for new connections at a price based on this debut effort at Chelmsford in February.
