Forecast

Son Of Rest (3/1), Ardhoomey (7/2), Alphabet (4/1), Cougar Mountain (9/2), Gordon Lord Byron (10/1), Snowstar (12/1), Khukri (14/1), Texas Rock (16/1), Magic Bear (16/1), Peticoatgovernment (16/1), Maarek (25/1), G Force (33/1), Rattling Jewel (33/1), Duchess Of France (50/1)

Verdict
Perhaps the consistent SNOWSTAR can get her head back in front here. This three-year-old daughter of Raven's Pass went close at Tipperary last time out without quite getting there but most importantly goes on all kinds of ground and is going the right way. Aidan O Brien's Alphabet has been running running well in better races than this and is feared most, ahead of stablemate Cougar Mountain.
  1. Snowstar
