Forecasts

Marlborough Sounds (6/4), Divine Approach (5/1), Rockabill (11/2), Wishing Star (6/1), Comeragh Haze (8/1), Cache Queen (10/1), For Pleasure (11/1), Shemara (12/1), Summer's Dream (66/1)

Verdict

Shemara is a handicap debutante to note. This step up in trip should suit her and any market confidence would boost her chance. Marlborough Sands has been in great form and is sure to be in the thick of the action once again. Ready preference is for CACHE QUEEN who has a very progressive profile and can get back to winning ways after going so close at Galway last time.
  1. Cache Queen
  2. Shemara
  3. Marlborough Sounds
