Forecasts

Goodthynemilan (5/2), Urbanist (7/2), Spancil Hill (5/1), Western Goose (6/1), Littlestickarubarb (6/1), Glenabo Bridge (10/1), Mlily (12/1), Time And Times (20/1), Loughnavalley (20/1), Hackets Folly (25/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (25/1), Quay Witness (33/1)

Verdict

Goodthynemilan looks the obvious one after winning his last two, but this drop back in trip may not be in his favour and URBANIST is worth a try to upset the applecart. He too is in good form and seemed to stay this trip on his latest start. He can improve again and win here. Frgilliagansvoyage is worth a look in the market, with possible improvement to come now he steps into handicaps, and at a bigger price, don't totally dismiss Hackett's Folly either.
  1. Urbanist
