Forecast

Becauseshesaidso (4/1), Finnegan's Garden (9/2), Auenwirbel (6/1), Ballyegan (7/1), Kings Cross (17/2), Bonds Conquest (10/1), Badilou (12/1), Brereton (12/1), General Girling (14/1), Easyondeye (16/1), Mountain Of Angels (20/1), Refused A Name (20/1), In The Tub (33/1)

Verdict
Very moderate fayre on offer here and it might pay to stick with FINNEGAN'S GARDEN, who is no good thing after an 8lb rise given his previous record, but is at least in decent form and might have a follow-up success within. Elder statesman Ballyegan also arrives on the back of a win and looks worth short-listing, though whether he is as effective on heavy ground remains to be seen. Bonds Conquest ran well on his reappearance last season, so a lengthy absence need not prevent him from picking up some money, while Becauseshesaidso, Kings Cross and Auenwirbel are also considered.
  1. Finnegan's Garden
  2. Ballyegan
  3. Bonds Conquest
