Forecast

Bittersweet (11/4), Reverberation (7/2), Lady Boomerang (9/2), Finvarra (6/1), Rosenborg Rider (10/1), Vocal Relation (12/1), Lunastar (14/1), Banrion Fuar (16/1), Bonnington Lass (20/1), Doogan's Warren (25/1), Cosmic Symbol (25/1), Lady Rosebud (25/1), Lorente (33/1), Another Dressin (33/1), Rockafilly (33/1), Fianchetto (40/1), American Hustle (50/1)

Verdict
The form of his defeat behind Aunty Audrey at Gowran Park last month looks solid enough to side with the chances of FINVARRA, from the Niall Madden yard who hold a 60% strike rate since 2015 here with runners at this venue, early October/late November - three winners from five starts. Distance winner Lady Boomerang and the hat-trick seeking c&d winner Bittersweet can prove to be the biggest dangers while Lady Rosebud, three time C&D winner could go well at a price.
  1. Finvarra
  2. Bittersweet
  3. Lady Rosebud
