Forecast

Good Tidings (10/3), Grandmaster Flash (4/1), Ballylemon (9/2), Creationist (5/1), Bo Samraan (6/1), Deal A Dollar (11/1), Sweet Celebration (14/1), Pianissimo (16/1), Blowing Dixie (20/1)

Verdict
A trappy-looking contest, it is hard to ignore Irish raider GRANDMASTER FLESH, who was a game winner two starts ago before two miles just proved too far last time. Back at this trip, which looks optimum, he looks to be well placed off his handicap mark by his trainer. Sweet Celebration has been incredibly progression and has showed likabilities that she will stay the trip, while the likes of Bo Samraan and Good Tidings should be winning again off their marks sometime soon, although the latter will need to settle better at this trip.
  1. Grandmaster Flash
