Forecast

Finaghy Ayr (5/2), Smuggler's Stash (7/2), Achill Road Boy (9/2), Misfits (13/2), Dick Darsie (8/1), Kalastar (9/1), Lowanbehold (11/1), Purple Harry (20/1), Onderun (25/1), Scorpo (50/1), Thedfactor (66/1)

Verdict
The pair to concentrate on may be Smuggler's Stash and FINAGHY AYR, who fought out a finish at that Scottish track in February. It was the former that came out best and, seeking a hat-trick, he looks sure to go well again. Brian Hughes jumps on board the selection today and his consistency could be rewarded. He's also 11lb better off for a 1¾L that day and that may be telling. Misfits and Achill Road Boy are considered for the minors.
  1. Finaghy Ayr
  2. Smuggler's Stash
