Forecast

Waterlemon Bay (13/2), Watchman (7/1), Tracing (7/1), Der Mc (7/1), Airgead (10/1), Eyeoweyou (10/1), High Altitude (12/1), Blankiedoodie (12/1), Voyageofdiscovery (12/1), Avalanche (12/1), Fugacious (14/1), Gougane Barra (16/1), Munfallet (20/1), Cautious Approach (20/1), Never Shy Away (20/1), Marwari (20/1), Stranagone (25/1), Progressive Dawn (25/1), Out On Friday (33/1), Pari Passu (33/1), House Call (33/1), Usain Boat (33/1), Battledore (50/1)

Verdict
A fiercely competitive handicap with a full field of 20 set to go to post. He has been a little bit quieter than in recent starts of late after notching a hat-trick of victories, but Blankiedoodie hinted he may not be on the downgrade just yet when fifth at Naas last time. It would be unfair to dismiss Voyageofdiscovery, after he had an off day last time. He has proved he handles turf of late with multiple placed efforts. A chance is taken on WATERLEMON BAY though. The selection showed a fair level of ability in maidens at the backend of last season, and has made a respectable start to life in handicaps this year. He is likely to be firmly in the mix once more.
  1. Waterlemon Bay
  2. Voyageofdiscovery
  3. Blankiedoodie
