Forecasts

Port Lions (8/11), Zihba (15/8), Matter Of Time (6/1), Dancing Lady (11/1), Queen Rabab (20/1), Irish Minister (25/1), Itschessnotchekers (25/1), Ishigati (25/1), Rock In Society (25/1), Annie Ok (33/1), Tempestua (33/1), Sovereigns Rock (40/1), Spittal Field (50/1), Flemings Hill (66/1), Moorepark Lad (66/1), Night Myth (80/1), Hen Party (100/1)

Verdict

Irish Minister and Ishigati look the most likely debutants and are worth a look in the betting, but this is probably best left to PORT LIONS, who looks the form choice and has proved his ability to act on this surface. Queen Rabab and Dancing Lady may improve on their debut displays.
  1. Port Lions
  2. Irish Minister
  3. Dancing Lady
