Forecasts

Acapella Bourgeois (4/7), Fine Rightly (7/1), Attribution (7/1), Coeur Joyeux (8/1), Polidam (10/1), Apache Stronghold (14/1), Marlbrook (14/1), Flemenstar (16/1), Kylecrue (25/1), Peoples Park (33/1)

Verdict

A strong contested early pace could be on the cards here with Marlbrook and Kylecrue known to lead with Attribution racing in behind the leaders. Acapella Bourgeois was a disappointing beaten last favourite last time out in the Grade B Troytown here over 3m and was never going well at any period of the race, so preference is for the Henry De Bromhead-trained ATTRIBUTION who can build on his win at Limerick in October.
