Forecast

Hawaam (13/8), Soffia (3/1), Major Power (4/1), Excelling Spirit (7/1), Wilderness (7/1), Amthaal (9/1), Castletownshend (10/1), Arcanears (20/1), Gala N Dandy (20/1), Clifftop Dancer (25/1), Kodianne (25/1), Noirvento (33/1), Beau Rocko (33/1), Peddlers Pass (50/1), Darknessintlight (66/1), Minor Melody (66/1), Florida's King (66/1), Somelife (66/1), Courtney Crimson (80/1)

Verdict

SOFFIA just about shades the verdict on the basis of her close second at Navan when last spotted. If she's progressed over the winter then a race like this should be within her grasp. Hawaam was also second at that same track a mere 18 days ago and merits plenty respect while newcomers Excelling Spirit and Clifftop Dancer are worth paying attention to.
  1. Soffia
  2. Hawaam
