Forecasts

Maymine (11/4), Urban Beat (8/1), Red Persian (8/1), Canford Art (8/1), Tammy Wynette (9/1), Sunday Smart (10/1), Hello Brigette (10/1), Vinnie's Wish (10/1), Art Of Unity (11/1), It's All A Joke (12/1), Gottardo (12/1), It's Two O Clock (14/1), Aurora Eclipse (16/1), T For Tango (16/1), Way Back Home (20/1), Powersville (20/1)

Verdict

Urban Beat got the better of a couple of useful sorts when taking a maiden on reappearance and shouldn't be overlooked here despite top weight while Art Of Unity is also worth considering for an in-form yard after a good Navan run. Canford Art should have more to offer and joins Aurora Eclipse amongst the contenders but IT'S TWO O CLOCK makes a first foray on turf from what could be a workable mark and should go well for the champion jockey. Stablemate It's All A Joke could outrun his odds.
  1. It's Two O Clock
  2. Urban Beat
  3. Aurora Eclipse
