Forecast

Defy De Mee (1/1), Lethal Steps (4/1), Cenotice (5/1), Sullane Hill (8/1), Licklighter (12/1), Black Market (25/1), Kos (25/1), Cahir Abbey Tavern (33/1), Bannow Breeze (33/1), Our Dark Horse (33/1), Eclair De Rock (66/1), Effernock Fizz (66/1), Arizona Flyer (66/1), Lilly Geal (66/1), Kilrane Road (100/1), Hansom Lady (100/1), Acrux Cass (100/1)

Verdict
LETHAL STEPS and Defy De Mee stand out on form in this company. The latter bumped into an improver last time and would appear to have a race in him at this trip. However, the selection is less highly tried than of late and sets the standard with an official rating of 125. His Flat speed should see him to good effect around this circuit with the quicker ground also adding to the appeal.
