Forecast

Plan Of Attack (5/1), The Major General (13/2), Oighear Dubh (7/1), Yeats Mardy (7/1), Sweet Home Chicago (8/1), Presentingprincess (8/1), Movingswiftlyalong (8/1), Harrys Gift (10/1), First To Boogie (12/1), Railway Muice (14/1), Queen Khaleesi (20/1), Father Mattie (25/1), Coolmill (33/1)

Verdict
Not an easy race to call, but FATHER MATTIE is the suggestion. Admittedly, he has fitness to prove, but he is on what looks to be a handy mark for this return from an absence and a first-time cheekpieces/tongue-strap combination could also help. Plan Of Attack is feared now stepping up in trip, while Presentingprincess, Sweet Home Chicago, Olghear Dubh and Yeats Mardy all make some appeal.
  1. Father Mattie
  2. Plan Of Attack
  3. Oighear Dubh
