Forecast

Inflorescence (4/1), Olay Power (4/1), Cozy Sky (5/1), Jarrocho (11/2), Wild Bob Cat (7/1), Black Martini (8/1), Espirit D'Escalier (9/1), Fugacious (10/1), Emily Grace (14/1), Cactus Tree (16/1), Dash To Celebrate (16/1), Showmethegin (25/1), Storm Blitz (33/1)

Verdict
The early speed between stalls four and six could possibly set the race up for jockey Oisin Orr to replicate the win for OLAY POWER at Sligo earlier in the month. The 5lb rise may not be enough to halt the Acclamation filly as she attempts to get the better of speedsters, Dash To Celebrate and Espirit D'escalier.
  1. Olay Power
  2. Dash To Celebrate
  3. Espirit D'Escalier
