Forecasts

Racing Pulse (5/2), King's Song (9/2), A Sizing Network (9/2), Whatareudoingtome (13/2), Logical Song (7/1), Arkwrisht (10/1), Tulsa Jack (12/1), Une Lavandiere (12/1), Raz De Maree (14/1), Wounded Warrior (14/1), Rogue Angel (25/1), Bless The Wings (25/1), King Leon (33/1), Undressed (40/1), Dare To Endeavour (50/1)

Verdict

A Sizing Network will possibly ensure an honest pace here with Rogue Angel and Dare To Endeavour chasing behind. The decent pace could play to the strength's of Kings Song who won easily on stable debut and ARKWRISHT who can be forgiven last run at Limerick, while the running styles of Racing Pulse and Whatareudoingtome may hinder them at Cork unless a change of tactics are considered.
  1. Arkwrisht
