Forecast

Saglawy (2/5), Icario (3/1), Warnaq (12/1), Aquarian (14/1), Gold Seal (25/1), Elusive Exclusive (25/1), Duke's Girl (33/1), Roxboro Road (33/1), Kildorrery (33/1), Delightful Guest (66/1), Glenrua (80/1), She'sasupermack (100/1), Bing Bang Bank (100/1)

Verdict
The likes of Duke's Girl, Elusive Exclusive and Icario can give decent former French Flat performer SAGLAWY the toe in to the race he needs here to build on his debut run at Thurles in January. The Gordon Elliott-trained Icario under Davy Russell can give him plenty to think about with newcomers Aquarian and Gold Seal possibly hitting the frame in the opener.
  1. Saglawy
