Forecasts

Acting Lass (7/4), Ballydine (5/2), Ballyarthur (3/1), Cultivator (11/2)

Verdict

Cultivator is happiest going right-handed and his hurdling form gives him an obvious chance from this mark. However, he is unproven on a soft surface and ACTING LASS makes more appeal. This lightly raced sort has bags of scope and will have learnt plenty from his chasing debut. That form has substance and he can take this en-route to better things. Ballydine looks a threat judged on his comeback run last month, but he had a hard race that day and it remains to be seen if this fragile sort can reproduce that kind of effort again. Ballyarthur is better than his two chase efforts suggest and he cannot be dismissed lightly in what should be an intriguing contest.
