Betting

Forecast

Sebastiano Ricci (9/2), Bronze Age (11/2), Art Of America (6/1), Beach Wedding (13/2), Dance Emperor (7/1), Vinnie's Wish (7/1), Scorpion Black (8/1), Dawn Hoofer (10/1), Triple Sec (12/1), Lady Godiva (14/1), Clueless Hill (20/1), My Silver Nails (20/1), Fancy Dresser (25/1), Sagittarius Rising (33/1)

Verdict
Not many of these can be ruled out, so the betting may well be an essential guide. The filly MY SILVER NAILS scored last summer on yielding to soft ground at the Curragh before finding life tough off an increased rating. She's within 2lb of that winning mark now and enjoyed a recent spin over 5f at Navan to blow off the cobwebs. That fitness advantage could be very useful in seeing off the likes of Vinnie's Wish and Dance Emperor, both of which are respected. Of those that have had a run this term, Art Of America and Scorpion Black are considered likely improvers.
