Forecast

Fag An Bealach (3/1), Minx Tiara (5/1), Whatucallher (13/2), Rebel Early (7/1), Sassy Yet Classy (8/1), My Club Colours (9/1), Liffeydale Dreamer (12/1), Vinabell (16/1), Peterstown (16/1), Lill Smith (16/1), Colour Me In (20/1), Laureate (22/1)

Verdict
Hard to make a confident case for any of these runners and a hopeful selection is LILL SMITH. The seven-year-old never gets beaten too far and although she needs to put a poor run last time out behind her, she has the consistency to suggest she is capable of landing this contest off her current mark. Peterstown is another who needs to bounce back from a poor run on her latest outing. She had previously shown form good enough at Wexford to suggest she is more than capable of winning a similar race. Sassy Yet Classy is not one to reply on at present but she is certainly starting to look well handicapped.
  1. Lill Smith
  2. Peterstown
  3. Sassy Yet Classy
