Forecasts

Imperial Aura (13/8), Dimple (7/4), Off The Hook (10/3), Bally Conor (5/1), Oscar Wilde (11/2), Voila Eric (40/1), Langness (50/1), Pieceoftheaction (66/1)

Verdict

Quite a few with claims in a good finale, but the narrow choice is the unexposed southern raider IMPERIAL AURA who could potentially be a decent sort and won well last time out. Dimple is in great form and should go well in his bid for a four-timer, while the mare Off The Hook is another well capable of making her presence felt. Oscar Wilde is feared if his latest form can be believed and the market should reflect just how confident connections are this time.
  1. Imperial Aura
  2. Oscar Wilde
  3. Dimple
