Forecast

Casimiro (5/2), Alans Pride (7/2), Prosecution (7/1), Mcguigan (9/1), Gunmaker (10/1), Mr Ormsby (10/1), That Is The Spirit (12/1), Fashaar (12/1), Markhan (20/1), Confrontational (20/1), Ice Cold In Alex (25/1), Liberatio (25/1), Ducky Mallon (25/1), Flowerhill Nova (25/1), King Torus (33/1), The Phantom Punch (50/1)

Verdict
Flowerhill Nova has been offered a chance here by the handicapper on seasonal return and is worth paying some attention but the same can be said of CONFRONTATIONAL, who ran some useful races on the AW last year and looks to be on a decent mark now. A first-time hood and the booking of Seamie Heffernan add to the positives. Alans Pride was a Curragh winner this month but faces a tough ask on these terms while Markhan and Casimiro are others with potential in a wide open heat.
  1. Confrontational
