Forecast

Dance Alone (4/1), Ty Rock Brandy (9/2), Early Call (7/1), Gopsies Daughter (8/1), Wild Bob Cat (9/1), Sweetest Taboo (10/1), Captain Power (10/1), Idalia (12/1), Bahlwan (14/1), Downtown Diva (14/1), Paved Paradise (16/1), Guiding Star (16/1), Pillar (16/1), Associate Rock (20/1), Gillabbey Rock (25/1), Blue Suede (33/1), Irregardless (66/1)

Verdict
This may come down to a couple of C&D winners with the time off the track possibly putting paid to the chances of the Ado McGuinness-trained, Pillar as the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding may have to give way to the winner of this contest 12 months ago, SWEETEST TABOO. The Willie McCreery-trained eight-year-old won on her most recent start at Tipperary last month and can get the better of the likes of Ty Rock Brandy, Wild Bob Cat and the Denis Hogan-trained, Gopsies Daughter.
  1. Sweetest Taboo
  2. Pillar
  3. Gopsies Daughter
