Forecasts

Marshalled (7/2), Colour Me In (7/2), Balkos (9/2), Key Commander (5/1), Rare Conor (6/1), Dawson's Gate (10/1), Empire Burleque (12/1), Northern Emperor (14/1), Tashman (14/1), Cousin Harry (25/1), Sweet Sting (33/1), Trendsetter (33/1), Robin Des Ruby (40/1)

Verdict

MARSHALLED can overcome a 7lb rise for his win at Clonmel where the Flemensfirth gelding got off the mark at the fourth time of asking for connections. The Eoin Doyle-trained Key Commander and the first-time blinkered Empire Burleque rates as the main threats while Northern Emperor may be capable of going well at a likely bigger price.
