Forecast

Salvatore (13/8), Coco Live (9/2), Tricky Silence (8/1), Sixteen Letters (10/1), Laser Beam (10/1), Latenightpass (11/1), Captain McGinley (14/1), Chapelier (20/1), Pancrace (25/1), Ballycahane (25/1), Doctor's Differ (25/1), Black Jewel (33/1), Lords Park Star (40/1), What A Joke (66/1), Max O (66/1)

Verdict
Laser Beam is an interesting one, with Richard Collinson preferring him to Chapelier who on the face of it, might hold a better chance on form. He's worth watching in the market. Sixteen Letters is progressing and not to be overlooked, and both Captain McGinley and Coco Live hold chances, but SALVATORE represents powerful connections in this sphere and has continued to impress throughout the season. He can take this en route to better things. The danger could be Tricky Silence, who goes well for his young pilot, and may well have more improvement to come.
  1. Salvatore
  2. Tricky Silence
  3. Laser Beam
