Forecasts

Trongate (9/2), Ceegem (5/1), Ardmillan (11/2), Vertigo (13/2), Craiganboy (8/1), Arctic Vodka (10/1), Cruachan (10/1), Braes Of Lochalsh (16/1), Rinnagree Rosie (16/1), Transient Bay (25/1), Ollisu Lad (33/1), Instingtive (33/1)

Verdict

Modest stuff on offer here and Irish raider Ardmillan is interesting from this mark over hurdles, while Cruachan is respected after winning at Perth last time, for which Ceegem is 7lb better off for 10L now and could come into it given the scope he has for some improvement. Braes Of Lochalsh and Trongate both look worth checking out in the market and Arctic Vodka has claims. However, top weight TRANSIENT BAY represents a stable enjoying a good season and that has kept on improving him in recent years. This won't be easy first time out and needing another step up, but he relishes testing ground and may prove up to the task.
  1. Transient Bay
  2. Ardmillan
  3. Ceegem
