Forecast

Roxyfet (2/1), Rossmore's Pride (11/4), Frankie Ballou (6/1), Duhallowcountry (15/2), Tickerty Boo (17/2), Ringaringarosie (9/1), Gin Cobbler (16/1), Bertielicious (40/1)

Verdict
Reliable types and form are hard to find in this with the winner in 2015 and 2017 Roxyfet given a good chance of completing a hat-trick in the race under a promising 7lb conditional jockey. At this level Tickerty Boo could be a danger and the same could be said of the free-going Ringaringarosie who if given too much rope could make all. Frankie Ballou needs to reproduce his previous C&D form (not much sign of that lately) and a chance is taken with ROSSMORE'S PRIDE from the in-form Rebecca Menzies yard. The drop in trip may help him to show more this time around.
  1. Rossmore's Pride
  2. Roxyfet
  3. Ringaringarosie
