Forecasts

Aristocracy (3/1), Outrageous Romana (4/1), Handy Hollow (9/2), Nemean Lion (13/2), Blue Rhythm (7/1), Kingston (10/1), Gold Bonne Raine (14/1), Mullaghboy (20/1), Tir Dubh (25/1), Rumor (28/1), Tommy O'dwyer (33/1), Kilcaragh Boy (66/1)

Verdict

Quite a few of these are either struggling for form or are unproven over the trip so a chance is taken that BLUE RHYTHM can build on a promising effort last time out and step up land the spoils. Aristocracy could be a big danger having returned from a long absence to run really well on the Flat last time, while top weight Mullaghboy may bounce back over hurdles having struggled over fences. Kingston has a chance if he stays this longer trip, and Outrageous Romana is another who should have her supporters.
  1. Blue Rhythm
  2. Aristocracy
  3. Outrageous Romana
