Forecasts

The Long Mile (13/8), Muyam Spirit (7/2), Conright Boy (5/1), La Regle (8/1), Tongie (10/1), It's Only A Number (10/1), Well Tom (12/1), Fairymount Boy (14/1), Lacken Bridge (14/1), Baby Bellini (16/1)

Verdict

After a really encouraging effort at Thurles last time over fences MUYAM SPIRIT is fancied to make a winning handicap debut here for Denis Hogan. Recent Gowran runner-up Conright Boy ran well despite some novicey errors so he has to be respected with a chance to brush up his technique at this stage. Lacken Bridge and Baby Bellini are others with possibilities.
  1. Muyam Spirit
  2. Conright Boy
  3. Lacken Bridge
