Forecast

Iskabeg Lane (3/1), Nortonthorpelegend (4/1), Attention Please (4/1), Achill Road Boy (9/2), What A Laugh (6/1), So Satisfied (8/1), Notonebuttwo (8/1), Bafana Blue (9/1), Square Viviani (10/1), Alto Des Mottes (11/1), Troika Steppes (16/1), Shaiyzar (28/1), Sgt Bull Berry (66/1)

Verdict
ATTENTION PLEASE showed a willing attitude to win this race last year and his grim determination will help him off-set a 13lb higher mark this time. The gelding acts well under the predicted conditions and looks worthy of a small investment in his bid for back-to-back wins. Bafana Blue is another with a likeable attitude and can play a strong supporting role, while Achill Road Boy and So Satisfied are a couple of others to keep tabs on in the betting.
  1. Attention Please
  2. Bafana Blue
  3. Achill Road Boy
