Forecast

Herbiegoesbananas (9/4), Impressive Duke (11/4), Balgowlah (7/1), Greenandwhitearmy (10/1), Humps And Bumps (10/1), Sporty Yankee (11/1), Electricitywork (14/1), My Galway Girl (14/1), Cushinstown Finest (16/1), Charlotte Wells (16/1), Bracka Lily (20/1), Mash Potato (20/1), Boston Babe (25/1), Drumconnor Girl (25/1), Lady Of The Sea (33/1)

Verdict
A few of these have a bit to prove, not least Herbiegoesbananas after two disappointing efforts but there's surely better to come from SPORTY YANKEE now he's in the care of Gordon Elliott and he's taken to come on for his first start for the yard and take this. Electricitywork faces an easier task than a few he's faced and can improve, and similar comments apply to Drumconnor Girl as well .Impressive Duke is on a very good mark if fit.
  1. Sporty Yankee
  2. Electricitywork
  3. Drumconnor Girl
