Forecasts

Drury (4/5), Rian Thomas (7/4), Druim Samhraidh (4/1), Georgina Burgess (7/1), Follow Your Fire (8/1), Barnet Brook (9/1), Onawingandaprayer (16/1), My First Symphony (33/1), Sweet Sting (33/1), Toms Courage (40/1)

Verdict

RIAN THOMAS ran a nice race after a long absence when runner-up at Ballinrobe a couple of weeks ago and can build on that with a victory here under her fine rider. Drury is open to further improvement after a better effort second time out than on debut when something was clearly amiss, while Druim Samhraidh, and Barnet Brook, along with Onawingandaprayer are others who may get involved.
