Forecast

Linger (5/6), Mountain Fox (5/1), Hey Little Boy (6/1), Machiavelli (10/1), Shake The Bucket (12/1), Alcander (12/1), Bog War (16/1), Alterno (16/1), Walking On Glass (20/1), Brokopondo (20/1), Paula's Prayer (20/1), Glenbank King (25/1), Aasleagh Fawn (33/1)

Verdict
He's gone up 13lb for his troubles but LINGER dismissed his rivals at Gowran Park last time with a fare degree of abandon. That was his first start for Joseph O'Brien and the way he went about it suggests there are more races to be won with him. He can double-up, despite the handicapper's efforts. Limerick runner-up Mountain Fox can present a danger with this longer trip in his favour while Aasleagh Fawn and Machiavelli are two that could improve for this sort test and therefore are worth monitoring.
  1. Linger
  2. Mountain Fox
  3. Machiavelli
