Forecast

Das Mooser (3/1), Just A Normal Day (7/2), Dark Outsider (5/1), Bakers Street (6/1), Ballyfinboy (7/1), Invincible Don (8/1), Athloman Cottage (9/1), Burning Issues (20/1)

Verdict
If JUST A NORMAL DAY takes to the track he could take some stopping here with many conditions in his favour in this contest. The eight-year-old's last three efforts have been much improved including last month when finishing a little over 4L behind the 109-rated Theatre Dreams at Killarney. Das Mooser and Ballyfinboy can battle for the minor honours while it would be no surprise to see either of Dark Outsider and Bakers Street find their form back on this track.
  1. Just A Normal Day
  2. Ballyfinboy
  3. Dark Outsider
