Forecast

El Astronaute (11/4), Urban Beat (7/2), Ardhoomey (4/1), Primo Uomo (6/1), Smash Williams (8/1), St Patrick's Day (14/1), Angelic Light (14/1), Fantasy (16/1), The Broghie Man (20/1), Rapid Reaction (33/1), Optionality (33/1), Peshkova (33/1)

Verdict
EL ASTRONAUTE is well up to this level and with the yard flying in recent weeks, it would be no surprise to see the son of Approve return to form. Urban Beat will appreciate the drop back in class and softer conditions than his run last time out. Optionality has it all to do on Official Ratings but she's less exposed than most and ran with great credit last time in a career best effort.
