Forecast

Act In Time (9/2), Successor (11/2), Feeling The Love (6/1), Smithscorner (7/1), Powersbomb (7/1), Das Mooser (7/1), Black Scorpion (8/1), Perfect Leader (9/1), Mega Mindy (12/1), Roconga (14/1), Stormey (14/1), Tisamystery (25/1)

Verdict
Owner J P McManus could hold the cards here with four runners with the best of those appearing to be SUCCESSOR who got off the mark at the seventh time of asking over fences when landing a Wexford handicap last month beating My Manekineko 1L. The 6lb penalty may not be enough to stop the Joseph O'Brien-trained gelding as he gets the better of Feeling The Love and Act In Time, also in the green and gold colours. Tisamystery and Perfect Leader could emerge as lively outsiders.
  1. Successor
  2. Feeling The Love
  3. Act In Time
