Forecast

Koybig (5/1), Waitingfortheday (7/1), Emphatic (7/1), Ciao (7/1), Tony The Gent (7/1), Honor Oak (8/1), Wentwood (8/1), Tintoretto (10/1), Master Speaker (12/1), Star Quality (16/1), Spiorad Saoirse (16/1), Sirjack Thomas (16/1), Yuften (20/1), Stormy Belle (20/1), Stringybark Creek (20/1), Brendan Brackan (20/1), Pretty Boy Floyd (20/1), Divine Approach (20/1), Have A Nice Day (33/1), Shifted Strategy (33/1), Parabellum (50/1)

Verdict
WENTWOOD was much better than the bare result behind a couple of these at Killarney, and is taken to enhance the excellent Galway record of his trainer. Koybig beat a next-time-out winner in game style at the same venue last time, and remains below the mark he won off there last summer. Sirjack Thomas was behind the selection last time, but may have needed that run on his belated return, and is one to note in the betting.
  1. Wentwood
  2. Koybig
  3. Sirjack Thomas
