Forecasts

Wait Here (6/5), Bluegrass Princess (5/1), Cluan Dara (11/2), Pat's Oscar (6/1), Golden Poet (8/1), Lockeen Girl (10/1), Stole The Show (14/1), Fluspar (16/1), Charlotte Wells (33/1), Alfred Eile (33/1)

Verdict

It took WAIT HERE four attempts to get it right, but the gelding looked a transformed character last time out and could take the beating if he can take another step forward here. Lockeen Girl has some sound pieces of form to her name and comes in the reckoning as a player if she can adapt to racing here, while Pat's Oscar is another to bear in mind, as she'll be the main beneficiary if this turns into a stamina sapping slog for the line.
