Forecast

Scardura (13/8), Bathsheba Bay (15/8), Dusky Hercules (7/2), By Order Of (12/1), Aria Rose (16/1), Jawshan (25/1), Taurean Dancer (28/1), Sheeza Legend (33/1), Everlasting Sea (66/1), Finvarra (100/1), Sarasota (100/1), Alfie's Angel (125/1), Phoenix Lightning (150/1), Niamh's Oscar (200/1)

Verdict
BATHSHEBA BAY was the best of these on Flat form, and after an encouraging debut after a long absence, is taken to score at the second attempt over hurdles. Scardura shaped well on his only hurdles outing for Andy Slattery, and should be competitive on debut for Neil Mulholland, while Taurean Dancer appeals as the type who could improve on his fair Flat form now switching codes.
  1. Bathsheba Bay
  2. Scardura
  3. Taurean Dancer
