Forecast

Strategic Force (11/4), Clare Island (10/3), Free To Roam (5/1), Red All Star (6/1), Bluesbreaker (13/2), Baby Power (8/1), Power Of Ten (9/1), Nam (10/1), Blue Bounty (11/1), Oor Jock (14/1), Fashionable Man (16/1), Calypso Jo (16/1), Guiding Star (20/1), Scobias (20/1), Maysonette (20/1), Catwilldo (25/1), Madam Bounska (33/1)

Verdict
No shortage of good candidates here but the lightly raced, clearly improving CLARE ISLAND gets the nod to defy top-weight. Red All Star is closely matched with the selection and with a weight pull in his favour has to rate a big danger. Free To Roam, Baby Power and Blue Bounty are all given chances with that the order of preference for the trio.
  1. Clare Island
  2. Red All Star
  3. Free To Roam
