Forecasts

Call To Order (3/1), Ballycross (9/2), Lofgren (11/2), Pickamix (15/2), Red Giant (8/1), Marquis Of Carabas (10/1), Bestwork (10/1), Winter Lion (10/1), Laurium (12/1), The Young Master (14/1), Henri Parry Morgan (16/1), Tanit River (20/1)

Verdict

If the Young Master were to bounce back to anywhere near his old form he would take some stopping off what is now a very dangerous mark. Last time out winners Pickamix and Lofgren are both worthy of consideration, particularly the former who idled when leading last time. We weill give a chance that BALLYCROSS can now show some improved form. Having won well at Ffos Las he just got tapped for toe at Ludlow last time and this track could play to his strengths for a yard that won this race last year.
  1. Ballycross
