Forecast

Toor General (3/1), Warnaq (5/1), Mandarin Monarch (6/1), Pass Hymn (7/1), Effernock Lad (8/1), Tyrrell's Succes (8/1), Ronald Pump (10/1), Knock On Steel (11/1), Rock On Dandy (22/1), Chosen Flower (25/1), Double Speak (25/1), Kinnagoe Boy (33/1), Rosserk Abbey (66/1)

Verdict

Tyrrell's Succes produced a much better effort last time at Roscommon and would be of some interest, though drop right down to 2m is a worry. Toor General finally rewarded connections with a win at Roscommon last time, he's up 5lb for that and should go well again while Effernock Lad ran well at Galway last month and could harbour place claims. Mandarin Monarch has a handy pull at the weights with Toor General and is respected but handicap debutant KNOCK ON STEEL justified market support to land a Clonmel maiden last time and should go well with decent ground to suit now.
  1. Knock On Steel
  2. Mandarin Monarch
  3. Effernock Lad
