Forecast

Miss Echrad (3/1), Cailean's Angel (10/3), Blondes No More (7/2), Lady Of The Sea (5/1), Chesterfield Queen (6/1), Absentee (8/1), Granny Maura (12/1), Krisdenoel (12/1), Focus Well (12/1), Our Bonus (20/1), Jeremys Hope (33/1), Cock A Doodle Doo (33/1)

Verdict
MISS ECHRAD looks a cut above many of her rivals in this contest and the Brian Boru mare can build on two game starts since March to land the spoils in the opening contest. Possible improver Blondes No More looks the best of the rest while Absentee deserves a second look from the Denis Hogan yard.
  1. Miss Echrad
  2. Blondes No More
  3. Absentee
