Forecast

Prosecution (3/1), Gougane Barra (7/2), For Your Eyes (6/1), Latchet (13/2), Royal Admiral (13/2), Queen Amidala (7/1), Fulvio (8/1), Ragtime Red (8/1), Golden Valour (12/1), Sky Moon (14/1), Midnight Wilde (14/1), Emphatic (16/1), Itsalonglongroad (20/1), Usain Boat (25/1), El Chico Mejor (40/1), California Lad (50/1), Perfect In Pink (66/1)

Verdict
The Johnny Murtagh-trained PROSECUTION looked to be coming back to form when running El Tren to 1L in a 19-runner handicap at the Curragh last month. The five-year-old can land the spoils at the expense of the Jessica Harrington-trained For Your Eyes who ran well in defeat over C&D earlier this month finishing second of 14 behind Tartlette. Latchet for trainer Leanne Breen continues in good form and the Mick Halford-trained Gougane Barra is not easily discounted. Regular frame hitters at this venue, Royal Admiral and California Lad can be considered lively outsiders.
