Forecasts

Meagher's Flag (9/2), Koybig (11/2), Sheila's Hope (6/1), Winston Wolfe (6/1), Alfirak (13/2), Castle Guest (8/1), Remembered Joy (12/1), Two For Tea (14/1), Vastonea (16/1), Hypnotic Force (20/1), Poitin (25/1), Shamash (33/1)

Verdict

The ground was a possible excuse for SHEILA'S HOPE last time out and the filly could well still be in form after a host of wins this summer. Koybig should be a player here off his revised mark while Meagher's Flag isn't the easiest to assess but could run well again.
  1. Sheila's Hope
  2. Koybig
  3. Meagher's Flag
