Forecast

Dandys Gold (5/1), Shore Step (5/1), Littlevix (6/1), Brave Display (7/1), Little Miss Willow (7/1), Polly Douglas (8/1), Aubineau (10/1), A Few Dollars More (12/1), Nam (14/1), Lily's Prince (14/1), Oor Jock (14/1), Seanie (18/1), Cracking Name (25/1), Fox Dream (25/1), One Love One Heart (33/1), Madam Bounska (33/1), Qatar Delight (50/1)

Verdict
DANDYS GOLD ran a promising race in a big-field apprentice handicap at the Curragh and with the pre-held suspicion that she'd need a better surface to be seen to best effect, is taken to build on that run and collect today. Brave Display scored over a shorter trip at that same venue last week and is still on a workable mark relative to old form now while Littlevix should be in the mix if improving for her Curragh run. Handicap debutant Aubineau and course specialist A Few Dollars More are also worth considering.
  1. Dandys Gold
  2. Brave Display
