Forecast

Bothar Dubh (4/1), Mutadaffeq (6/1), De Mazzaro (6/1), Buttons And Bows (13/2), Grey Atlantic Way (10/1), Touch Of Gold (10/1), Voices Of Spring (12/1), Still Alive (14/1), Fly De Megaudais (14/1), Trump Sixteen (20/1), Presenting Point (25/1), Lucia's Bob (25/1), Dia Del Sol (25/1), Stander (28/1), Pilgrim Way (33/1), Just Klass (33/1), Trendsetter (33/1), Daliyan (33/1), Caoimhe Diva (50/1)

Verdict
Mutadaffeq and DE MAZZARO finished second and third at Limerick last time out in this sphere and should go well again. The latter didn't get a lot of racing room when it was needed and most and having been only narrowly foiled, is given the nod to reverse placings and open his account. Ballinrobe winner Fly De Megaudais is up 5lb and respected alongside the likes of Voices Of Spring and Dia Del Sol while Stander may improve with new headgear in play.
