Forecast

Free To Roam (5/1), Doonard Prince (6/1), D K Travel (7/1), Landline (10/1), Tidal's Baby (10/1), Breezolini (10/1), A Likely Story (10/1), Pillar (12/1), Gifted Lady (14/1), Calm Bay (14/1), Clare Island (16/1), Nora Batt (18/1), Town Ranger (20/1), Gopsies Daughter (20/1), Catwilldo (20/1), Mr Michael (22/1), Full Shilling (25/1), Busy Bush (25/1), Zircon (25/1), Acroleina (25/1), Madam Bounska (33/1), Ai Chan (33/1), Blockstar Girl (33/1), Onchu (33/1), Scobias (50/1), Agatha Rose (50/1)

Verdict
A LIKELY STORY clearly isn't the most reliable but he's starting to look well-handicapped on old form and he ought to enjoy the nature of this course. Nora Batt hinted at a return to form last time and is another on a fair mark while Breezolini got back on track this summer and is worth considering if she can get away on terms.
  1. A Likely Story
