Forecast

Shumaker (11/8), Iamastartoo (13/2), Tomeric (13/2), Dawson's Cottage (7/1), Powersbomb (7/1), Let The Heirs Walk (8/1), Oromo (10/1), Touch Of Gold (20/1), Blaze A Trail (25/1), An Marcach (25/1), Storm Flight (25/1), Baby Bellini (33/1)

Verdict
There was plenty to like about the performance of SHUMAKER in his win at Fairyhouse on Sunday and under a 5lb penalty he looks to have an excellent chance to follow up. Iamastartoo is getting ever closer and again looks sure to go close with recent maiden winner Tomeric also on the shortlist.
  1. Shumaker
  2. Iamastartoo
  3. Tomeric
