Forecast

Ingleby Mackenzie (11/2), Montauk Flyer (11/2), Nearly Famous (7/1), Dixie Highway (8/1), Toor General (8/1), Petite Gina (10/1), Tildas Icon (10/1), Slaney Street (10/1), Balinaboola Steel (10/1), Grey Mountain Mist (12/1), Love The Well (16/1), Messie (20/1), Streak (20/1), Edna (20/1), Royal Presenting (25/1), Moyhree (25/1), House Limit (25/1), Precious Gold (28/1)

Verdict
PETITE GINA was no match for the winner last time at Clonmel but did well enough in finishing second. That was an improved effort from Con O'Keefe's mare and the form may well be boosted when Slainte And Thanks runs in the preceding race here. Either way, she can build on that showing and go well today. Toor General has shown enough to merit consideration and should be fitter here while Tramore winner Ingleby Mackenzie is in the mix despite a drop in trip. Royal Presenting, Love The Well and Dixie Highway all have some merit about them in an open heat.
  1. Petite Gina
  2. Toor General
  3. Ingleby Mackenzie
