Forecast

Mr Shelby (4/1), Focus Of Attention (9/2), Caesar's Comet (6/1), A Likely Story (7/1), Zeeyalater (7/1), Althib (8/1), Nightflight (8/1), Clonville (8/1), Guiding Star (9/1), Clare Island (10/1), Ancient Astronaut (10/1), Pillar (12/1), Clebourne (16/1), Very Smart (16/1), Lavinuela (18/1), January Morn (25/1), Forza Libranno (33/1)

Verdict
FOCUS OF ATTENTION caught the eye last month in a Navan handicap on her first start for the Joseph O'Brien yard going down by 1¾L over 5f and this extra 1f looks sure to suit the daughter of Intense Focus here. A Likely Story who appears to be improving with every run can battle for the minor honours with Caesar's Comet in first-time blinkers and Pillar who could out-run his odds.
  1. Focus Of Attention
  2. A Likely Story
  3. Caesar's Comet
