Forecasts

Steer Clear (11/8), R'evelyn Pleasure (7/4), Sweetlight D'oroux (6/1), Mangan Julia (8/1), Reach Up (10/1), More Information (16/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (20/1), Doyen Bay (33/1), Tina Marie (40/1), Georgia Grace (50/1), Nonameyet (66/1)

Verdict

This doesn't look the strongest of maiden hurdles and it can go the way of STEER CLEAR who has run well in better contests the last twice. Padraig Roche's charge is improving with racing and can get the better of Sweetlight D'oroux who represents leading connections today while Reach Up can put a disappointing effort last time out behind him by finishing third.
  1. Steer Clear
  2. Sweetlight D'oroux
  3. Reach Up
