Forecast

Veiled Secret (7/2), Dahills Hill (9/2), Eagle Ridge (5/1), Lovely Schtuff (5/1), High Noon (11/2), Ballycrystal Court (7/1), Buyer Beware (15/2), Fully Booked (17/2), Timesawaiting (14/1), Goldslinger (16/1), Little Stevie (18/1)

Verdict
A windy-looking contest but a tentative selection would be BUYER BEWARE. The 5lb claim of his jockey negotiates the fact he is off a higher mark than his last win at this track, but the lack of headgear today may work in reverse favour and sharpen him up off the back of a tame effort. Veiled Secret looks to be his main danger given he is running back to his level but caution is advised on his chasing debut, while the likes of Little Stevie and Lovely Schtuff look to be out of form but are on tumbling handicap marks.
  1. Buyer Beware
