Forecast

Don't Do It (11/4), Falcon's Fire (7/2), Bromance (9/2), Life Knowledge (7/1), Clenymistra (9/1), Mount Cleshar (10/1), Highwayman (16/1), Kilcoran (16/1), Nearly There (22/1), Magic's Boy (25/1)

Verdict
A case of after the Lord Mayor's Show (the Fast Track Qualifier), this divided 1m4f Class 6 Apprentices Handicap makes precious little overall appeal. Expect the likes of Bromance and Clenymistra (stamina to conclusively prove) to be involved in the shake up, whilst Don't Do It, Mount Cleshar and Kilcoran all compete off lightweights. However, a preference is for 'the often reluctant hero' FALCON'S FIRE who has in his defence knocked at the door of late on turf, and has an eye-catching rider booked in the shape of Seamus Cronin.
  1. Falcon's Fire
  2. Mount Cleshar
  3. Bromance
