Forecasts

Prepare For Battle (4/9), Rayda (7/2), Black Noah (10/1), Small Wonder (11/1), Velsen (20/1), Shadow Seven (20/1), Long Wood (22/1), Flamma Clarus (28/1), Lady Savanah (33/1), Reaper Man (100/1), Alfred Elmore (100/1), Allez Secrete (100/1), Kris Black (100/1)

Verdict

This looks a good opportunity for PREPARE FOR BATTLE to get off the mark at the third time of asking after running well in a huge field at the Curragh latest. Rayda ran a nice race on debut and is certainly capable of improvement so she enters calculations as does Long Wood who should appreciate the step up in trip.
