Forecast

Sense Of Urgency (3/1), Frightened Rabbit (7/2), Fading Icon (4/1), Sleep In First (6/1), The Character (9/1), Valgor Du Ronceray (9/1), Cherry Princess (12/1), Windy Writer (14/1), Towerburn (14/1), Paddy Melia (28/1)

Verdict
Not the strongest of contests, so it's perfectly feasible that the seven-race hurdles maiden Fading Icon can figure positively on debut for Phil Kirby, and the market could well guide. Both Cherry Princess and Frightened Rabbit have made the frame in this race in recent years, with the former preferred of that duo despite returning from a 246-day absence. However, in a race where small stakes are best played, a chance is taken on the June 2018 C&D scorer SENSE OF URGENCY. For her, the forecast conditions will be favourable and she also has the benefit of a recent run at Perth under her belt.
  1. Sense Of Urgency
  2. Fading Icon
