Forecast

Mean Fomhair (5/2), Asanda (3/1), Rule The Sea (6/1), Lady Savanah (13/2), Balletto (7/1), Prime Chief (8/1), Fiannaiocht (8/1), Zayriyan (8/1), Scorpion Black (8/1), Anfaass (10/1), Crest Of A Wave (10/1), Lady Boomerang (12/1), Kody Ridge (16/1), Is Fantastic (20/1), Bigger And Better (25/1), Ancient Astronaut (25/1), Dark Magic (25/1), Dragon Belle (25/1), Caronda (33/1)

Verdict
MEAN FOMHAIR improved on her handicap debut to score cosily at Roscommon. She is a making a quick reappearance here where she looks good enough to carry a 6lb penalty to land her second success in as many starts. Asanda is improving with every start and her latest effort suggests she is not going to be far away from her opening victory off this latest mark, while Scorpion Black is returning to the C&D she broke her maiden over so has to enter the calculations.
  1. Mean Fomhair
  2. Asanda
  3. Scorpion Black
