Forecast

Emmas Joy (10/11), Cill Anna (7/2), Granny's Secret (6/1), Tara Niece (9/1), Rose Of Aghaboe (12/1), Thoor Castle (20/1), Notawordofalie (20/1), Agent Valdez (33/1), Arans Choice (33/1), Misaps (33/1), Always Able (40/1), Thequeenbee (100/1)

Verdict
Some potentially nice mares’ in this and Emmas Joy already successful around here over a shorter trip will enjoy this ease in grade after finding a Sandown Grade 2 too tough last time out. She’ll be hard to beat but Cill Anna may just have the tools to do so wearing a tongue-tie for the first time having a liking for a test of stamina like this last time at Wincanton. Course bumper winner Rose Of Aghaboe paid for trying to take it to a decent sort last time and she’s better than a well beaten second showed. Tara Niece and Granny’s Secret are worth noting although the most interesting to keep an eye on will be Notawordofalie as this is her run for a mark.
  1. Cill Anna
  2. Emmas Joy
  3. Rose Of Aghaboe
