Forecast

High Sparrow (3/1), Static Jack (3/1), Freewheelin Dylan (6/1), Graineyhill (13/2), Wonderoftheworld (8/1), Aherlow (10/1), Kilkishen (12/1), Home Place (12/1), Guided By You (16/1), The Gatechecker (20/1)

Verdict
FREEWHEELIN DYLAN has topweight and a rise in the handicap to contend with but may still be good enough to beat a field of generally out of form rivals. There was plenty to like about the way he won last time out at Kilbeggan and he looks to have the measure of the runner-up that day, Kilkishen. Graineyhill is certainly one to consider given how he has improved plenty since being stepped up in trip the last twice. A repeat of either of those two runs off this lower mark should see him running the selection close.
  1. Freewheelin Dylan
  2. Graineyhill
  3. Kilkishen
