Forecast

Kilcrea Vale (9/4), Thomas Brown (7/2), Fortunate George (9/2), Pougne Bobbi (9/2), Voix D'Eau (15/2), Ballotin (16/1), Chris Pea Green (28/1), Morning Reggie (33/1)

Verdict
KILCREA VALE has plenty going for him in terms of the ground and trip, and looks the sort to keep improving this year. He can take this at the expense of Ballotin , another that may yet do better, and Fortunate George, who is on a fair mark and looks about ready to win over fences.
  1. Kilcrea Vale
  2. Ballotin
  3. Fortunate George
