Forecast

Chosen Hour (7/2), Mutadaffeq (4/1), Veneziano Springs (6/1), Coral Blue (7/1), Galuppi (8/1), Visioman (10/1), Peace Party (12/1), Princess Mahler (12/1), De Mazzaro (14/1), Tashman (14/1), Noble Intention (16/1), Rock On Seamie (20/1), Derby De Thaix (20/1), Roachdale House (25/1), The Birdie Crowe (33/1), English Pale (33/1), Brindabella (33/1), Keep Standing (50/1)

Verdict
The Sean Aherne-trained CHOSEN HOUR was still going well and in contention when 1L clear making an horrendous blunder two out to unseat luckless rider at Fairyhouse last month. The seven-year-old failed in a hat-trick bid in that contest but can back to winning ways here seeing off the attentions of Princess Mahler, Galuppi and Mutadaffeq.
