Forecasts

First Drift (6/4), Ballyvic Boru (6/4), Sizing Cusimano (3/1), Cash To Ash (28/1), Robert De Bruce (66/1)

Verdict

Ballyvic Boru arrives in good form after his bumper win at Newcastle, though preference is for the also-penalised FIRST DRIFT, who is showing gradual improvement and may be able to defy his extra burden for winning at Doncaster. Sizing Cusimano is the most interesting of the remainder.
  1. First Drift
  2. Ballyvic Boru
  3. Sizing Cusimano
