Betting

Forecast

Cuban Hope (13/8), Pepperoni Pete (11/4), Castle Guest (6/1), Magnetic North (7/1), Greenpanda (10/1), High Street Lady (12/1), Amlad (20/1), Polly Glide (33/1), Havana Breeze (33/1)

Verdict
PEPPERONI PETE was impressive when winning last time at Cork and the way he finished the race suggests this distance will be ideal for him, making him the one to beat here. If you can forgive his last run, Cuban Hope has a strong chance, while High Street Lady is now off a mark where she is good enough to score from again.
  1. Pepperoni Pete
  2. Cuban Hope
  3. High Street Lady
