Forecasts

The Kings Baby (9/2), Lockeen Girl (9/2), Miss Sassie (11/2), Presenting Mahler (11/2), Open To The World (6/1), Glendine River (8/1), Pat's Pearl (10/1), Fintara (12/1), Mary Frances (16/1), Abbey Magic (25/1), Nicat's Benefit (50/1), Kittyhawkkay (66/1)

Verdict

Open To The World and The Kings Baby have been known to lead in the past and could well take up the mantle here with Fintara and Mary Frances prominent. MISS SASSIE can travel sweetly in behind the leaders before attempting to add to her Wexford win in September, while Lockeen Girl, second of 14 beaten 3¾L when last seen over this trip in a Wexford handicap hurdle in July and The Kings Baby can hit the frame.
  1. Miss Sassie
  2. Lockeen Girl
  3. The Kings Baby
