Forecast

Lady In Lavender (4/1), Prime Chief (4/1), Scorpion Black (6/1), Harvey Specter (7/1), Highway To Heaven (7/1), Loudest Whisper (8/1), The Lady's Bid (10/1), Jungle Jungle (10/1), Avalanche (16/1), Small Town Boy (25/1), Ancient Astronaut (25/1), Caronda (33/1), Ojinjintka (33/1), Delegating (33/1), Bye Bye Brussels (50/1), Bobby Cool (50/1), Starbella (50/1), Crinkell (50/1), Lady Cedar (50/1)

Verdict
SCORPION BLACK didn't take to the extended 1m1f here last month following a win over C&D in June. The Dermot Weld gelding can get the upper hand in this competitive looking handicap at the expense of recent Navan winner, The Lady's Bid, course winner, Highway To Heaven and the Denis Hogan-trained, Lady In Lavender.
  1. Scorpion Black
  2. The Lady's Bid
  3. Highway To Heaven
