Forecasts

Farouk D'Alene (4/6), Mig Des Taillons (11/2), Trump Legend (7/1), Railway Hurricane (8/1), Ugo Du Misselot (14/1), Ruhm Und Ehre (16/1), The Mayne Man (20/1), Blue Ribbon (20/1), Nathaniel's Dream (25/1), Mcquinn (25/1), Runadrum (33/1), My Wings (33/1), I Don't Get It (33/1), Raleagh Flora (50/1), Ballyallaght (50/1)

Verdict

FAROUK D'ALENE was successful on his sole appearance in a point-to-point by 18-lengths and must be fancied to build upon that here on his Rules debut from this leading yard. Trump Legend is an interesting newcomer who commands a lot of respect despite no experience, while Railway Hurricane comes into this on the back of a victory in a point-to-point on his first appearance and should be taken to hit the frame.
  1. Farouk D'alene
  2. Trump Legend
  3. Railway Hurricane
