Forecasts

Derrynane (11/8), Nautical Twilight (5/1), Discoverie (6/1), Amadoue (8/1), Ajabindejaw (10/1), Simply Business (10/1), Dark And Dangerous (12/1), Read'em And Weep (20/1), Strait Run (33/1), Copt Hill (33/1)

Verdict

With many of his rivals struggling for form, DERRYNANE might be the one here having run well on his last two starts. In a puzzling contest a case can also be made for top weight Amadoue who make the long journey up from Herefordshire and has claims on his best form. Nautical Twilight represnts an in-form stable and is in with a shout along with course specialist Discoverie. Another standing dish here, Dark And Dangerous, has it to do on recent efforts but last year's winner cannot be totally dismissed.
  1. Derrynane
  2. Amadoue
  3. Nautical Twilight
