Forecasts

Minella Fair (9/4), Gun Digger (9/4), Force Of Forces (5/2), High Sparrow (7/1), The Conditional (10/1)

Verdict

The Joseph O'Brien-trained High Sparrow is likely to make the early running here with Minella Fair and Forces Of Forces in pursuit. The early pace in the ground could be advantageous to the Jack Kennedy-ridden GUN DIGGER who can repeat his win at Down Royal when travelling well in to the race eventually landing the spoils.
