Betting

Forecast

Impact Factor (1/1), Riders Onthe Storm (2/1), Dr Mikey (7/1), St Stephens Green (14/1), Monatomic (14/1), Celtic Rising (20/1)

Verdict
IMPACT FACTOR ran well behind the smart Cilaos Emery last time out when second and that form has been boosted since so Jessica Harrington's novice can get off the mark himself here. Riders Onthe Storm is a danger now dropped significantly in class and Gowran scorer Dr Mikey is another who has to be considered also.
