Forecasts

Clearly Capable (10/3), By Rail (7/2), Hands Of Stone (7/2), Shininstar (4/1), Ballyantics (9/2), Comber Mill (17/2), The Herds Garden (10/1), Ortenzia (12/1), Mountain Chimes (18/1)

Verdict

Another modest contest. Despite his record, The Herds Garden is respected given his connections' record at this venue. However, preference is for BALLYANTICS, who arrives in decent form for his chase debut is bred for this job. By Rail should again be involved, while the market should probably be checked to gauge any renewed confidence in Clearly Capable. Shininstar is not written off.
  1. Ballyantics
  2. By Rail
