Forecasts

Force Of Forces (8/11), Ask Heather (9/4), Curious Times (9/2), Bazarov (20/1), Esthers Marvel (20/1), Montys Angel (33/1)

Verdict

FORCE OF FORCES put in a good effort on his first outing in nearly a year when finishing fourth at Thurles last time out and he can get off the mark on his second outing since joining this yard. The selection should appreciate the step up in trip and with the ground to suit also he can get the better of Ask Heather who has run well in handicap company the last twice. Curious Times has run well in a bumper here in the past and he can claim third today.
