Forecast

Turasoir (5/1), Like An Open Book (11/2), Golden Poet (7/1), Tintown Robin (7/1), Three Kings (8/1), Ale Ambrosio (10/1), Storm Rising (11/1), Sparkalark (12/1), Neddyvaughan (14/1), Dylrow (16/1), Dixie Highway (16/1), Shine In Dubai (16/1), Effernock Lad (20/1), Sillogue Pio (20/1), Streak (25/1), Brog Deas Nua (25/1), Caolaneoin (33/1), Charle Brune (40/1), Ivy Nook (50/1)

Verdict
Effernock Lad looks to be the possible front-runner here in this big field with Three Kings racing prominently in behind. LIKE AN OPEN BOOK is in good form at the moment and can build on solid runs at Clonmel and Fairyhouse. Tintown Robin and Golden Poet who was a good second last time out can battle for minor honours.
  1. Like An Open Book
  2. Tintown Robin
  3. Golden Poet
