Forecast

Burmese Waltz (5/4), Could Be King (9/2), Woody Creek (7/1), National Guard (7/1), Ferretti (12/1), Mofakker (14/1), Fairy Fort (16/1), Chutzpah (16/1), Inverleigh (20/1), Wild Bob Cat (33/1), Chagall (50/1), Jewel Love (50/1), Manard (100/1)

Verdict
National Guard sets the standard, and looks the pick of a trio of War Fronts trained by Aidan O'Brien here, but he did get beaten at very short odds here last time, and a chance is taken on BURMESE WALTZ to beat him after a very promising third on her debut at the Curragh. She had Woody Creek back in fourth that day, but Fozzy Stack's filly very much caught there eye, and should also get involved with the benefit of that outing.
  1. Burmese Waltz
  2. National Guard
  3. Woody Creek
