Forecasts

Zuenoon (13/8), Coral Beach (7/4), Pepperoni Pete (6/1), Arabic Channel (8/1), Cosmic Horizon (12/1), Refulgence Star (12/1), Fine Fettle (14/1), Kodi Dream (20/1), Wexford Land (20/1), Always Running (25/1), Colfer Me (33/1), Treasure Vale (50/1), Clifftop (66/1), Meryems Way (66/1)

Verdict

Coral Beach has had plenty chances already without getting a win, she finished second at Fairyhouse last time but is hard to place faith in for punting purposes. Arabic Channel was a decent fourth at Fairyhouse last time and ought to build on it now, while Cosmic Horizon could well improve past that rival. ZUENOON looked in need of the experience on debut at Limerick in June and should be much wiser now. Beaten on 2L, he can stride on and take this.
