Forecasts

Springtown Lake (11/4), Just A Sting (10/3), Adrien Du Pont (9/2), Kilcrea Vale (5/1), Wandrin Star (8/1), Holly Bush Henry (8/1), Exitas (14/1), Ballyheigue Bay (16/1), Deauville Dancer (20/1)

Verdict

JUST A STING made hard work of things at Exeter latest but he looks the sort to improve for a sterner test which this is and given his age and relative inexperience he should have plenty more to come so gets the vote here. Main danger looks to be Springtown Lake who has also started well over fences and he looks sure to go well providing he doesn't jump left like he did at Sandown two starts back. Kilcrea Vale completes the shortlist and his recent exploits at Aintree highlight how good a jumper he has.
  1. Just A Sting
  2. Springtown Lake
  3. Kilcrea Vale
