Forecast

Synopsis (4/1), Magic Of Light (6/1), Slowmotion (7/1), Billy's Hope (9/1), La Bella Vida (9/1), Teacher's Pet (10/1), Bonny Kate (10/1), West Bridge (12/1), Goulane Davina (12/1), Goodthynemilan (16/1), Elusive Ivy (16/1), Got Away (16/1), Head Turner (20/1), Thanks For Tea (20/1), Kilganer Queen (25/1), Presenting Mahler (33/1)

Verdict
Both Slowmotion and Elusive Ivy arguably haven't progressed since filling the frame behind regular winner Definite Ruby in this contest in 2017, but the Joseph O'Brien trained top-weight has been given a quiet campaign, perhaps with this race at the forefront of thought. Got Away travels over from England for Oliver Sherwood, whilst Billy's Hope would have place claims if delivering her 'A' game. However, we'll take a chance on one of those at the foot of the weights. SYNOPSIS is unexposed in handicap company after making a winning chasing debut at Thurles last month (2m2f). She represents Gordon Elliott and could have further improvement too offer.
