Forecast

Triplicate (7/2), Mr Everest (6/1), Suinda (6/1), Manamite (6/1), Hyperdrive (13/2), Advantage Point (13/2), Silver Star (8/1), Pass Hymn (16/1), Ming Dynasty (25/1), Weekend Offender (33/1), Jensen (33/1), Blick Des Obeaux (33/1), Archer's Up (33/1), Josie Wing (33/1), Major Mitchell (50/1), The Hunter Hoe (50/1), My Galway Girl (50/1), Golily (66/1), Definitely Sharp (100/1), Global Tour (100/1), Rabbie The Bard (100/1), Trenchtown Rock (100/1), Myanne (100/1)

Verdict
€215,000 purchase MANAMITE appears to have had plenty of issues in his brief career but if he is over them he could still be a smart prospect so he gets the nod here. Suinda is one of several hurdles newcomers who could be a danger given her impressive bumper win. In the same category is Advantage Point who won well at Punchestown.
  1. Manamite
  2. Suinda
  3. Advantage Point
