Forecast

Angels (7/2), Make A Challenge (4/1), War Hero (9/2), Whatharm (11/2), Syrena (6/1), Galtee Mist (7/1), Dee Sprinter (9/1), Canford Art (10/1), Pretty Boy Floyd (12/1), Cyrus Dallin (14/1), Sky Moon (14/1), Nothing To Lose (18/1), Stormy Air (20/1), Nam (20/1), Caesar's Comet (25/1), Facethepuckout (25/1), Foreign Legion (25/1), Merited (25/1), Vocal Duke (40/1)

Verdict
Make A Challenge, War Hero, Galtee Mist and Syrena either won or finished within 1½L of the winner here earlier in the week where their exertions may take it's toll as the well drawn ANGELS takes advantage of his third of 10 at Killarney last month. The Johnny Murtagh-trained filly can travel behind Make A Challenge and War Hero before making her move ahead of his nearest pursuers. Sky Moon, Stormy Air and Dee Sprinter should not be easily dismissed.
