Forecast

Yulong Gold Fairy (6/4), Delphinia (2/1), Ellthea (13/2), Drombeg Dream (11/1), Rionach (12/1), Normandel (14/1), Hand On Heart (20/1), Iiex Excelsa (20/1), Fresnel (20/1)

Verdict
YULONG GOLD FAIRY can add to the wins of Making Light last year and Vote Often in 2014 of the yard, building on some solid and consistent efforts last term culminating in a win in the Group 3 Concorde stakes at Tipperary in October. In a race where the O'Brien and Bolger runners deserve special consideration, Michael O'Callahans Rionach and the Fozzy Stack pair of Liex Excelsa and Hand On Heart can go well at a price, all looking capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Yulong Gold Fairy
  2. Rionach
  3. Hand On Heart
