Forecasts

Turbojet (5/4), Hurricane Darwin (3/1), Rightdownthemiddle (5/1), The King Of Brega (8/1), Crown Of Gold (9/1), Courtncatcher (10/1), Seskinane (12/1), Irish Bulletin (12/1), Wee Tiger (16/1), Shannak (16/1), Mr Boss Man (20/1), Just Call Me (25/1)

Verdict

The Mark Enright-ridden looks to be the only one to take the field along here in the early stages with Shannak and The King Of Brega close up. The early leader can hang on for a place along with Crown Of Gold, but preference is for the Barry Connell-owned and last time out winner HURRICANE DARWIN.
  1. Hurricane Darwin
  2. Turbojet
  3. Crown Of Gold
