Forecast

Guided By You (9/4), Jurby (5/2), Castafiore Park (7/2), Graineyhill (11/2), Frankly All Talk (6/1), Nobody Home (7/1), I'm An Izz Wizz (9/1), Ah Littleluck (10/1), Bosco Di Alco (12/1), Home Place (16/1), Nabraska (20/1), Eoline Jolie (25/1)

Verdict
GUIDED BY YOU showed a good deal more on his reappearance at Downpatrick recently and if he shows the same improvement returned to this longer trip, he's got sound claims. Graineyhill sets the bar for consistency and should be in the mix while Frankly All Talk is race-fit after a spin over hurdles and will have more to give in this sphere before too long.
