Forecast

Global Pass (3/1), Bercasa (9/2), Mnemonic Alexander (8/1), Karannelle (8/1), Miss Zizi (8/1), Natty Dresser (9/1), Lady Boomerang (10/1), Lady Godiva (10/1), Aibell (12/1), Kudbegood (12/1), Queen Rabab (16/1), Wilderness (20/1), Whatharm (20/1), Spanish Soprano (25/1), Loudest Whisper (25/1), Daubney's Dream (33/1), Namazee (100/1), Dharma Rain (100/1)

Verdict
Several of these clashed at Galway three weeks ago and Karannelle came out best of those. She has the hood fitted today and is likely to go well once more. Johnny Murtagh has a strong hand as he also saddles handicap debutante WILDERNESS who looks to have been given a very fair opening mark and is fancied to go close. If last weeks Dundalk winner Namazee gets a run, he will be a major player too.
