Forecasts

Dinard Rose (4/1), Rebel Early (9/2), My Club Colours (5/1), Blanketontheground (11/2), Bay Ambition (7/1), Sassy Yet Classy (8/1), Rapid Response (8/1), So Near So Farhh (8/1), Howaya Aoife (9/1), Whatucallher (9/1), Bobbie The Dazzler (50/1), Just Another Lady (50/1), Regina Dracones (66/1)

Verdict

The manner of the success of SO NEAR SO FARHH recently at Down Royal suggests she will appreciate this step up in trip and be able to follow up that win despite a rise in the weights. On the downside she will not want the conditions to get too testing. The youngster Dinard Rose is a likeable sort and makes her handicap debut having overstretched herself by running in a Graded contest last time: This looks well within her compass and she gets in on an arguably reasonable mark. My Club Colours won well last time out on soft ground and if continuing to improve then she has a chance of adding to that victory.
