Forecast

Tucanae (11/8), Miss Pernickety (9/4), Fort Worth Texas (9/2), Hopefully (10/1), Little Token (10/1), Miss Queen Bee (33/1), Ballycastle Girl (50/1), Mrs Pops (66/1), The Dreams Alive (66/1), Queen Of Fame (100/1), Rule Of June (100/1), Trixie Mc (100/1), Royal Mahler (100/1), Miss Anfield (100/1), Ballela To Moscow (100/1)

Verdict
MISS PERNICKETY can can build on her second of 14 at Limerick at the end of last month to land the spoils here. The Joseph O'Brien-trained mare wouldn't have to improve to much on that effort to get the better of the Paul Nolan-trained Tucanae, winner of a Limerick bumper on St Stephens day. Fort Worth Texas for trainer Colin Bowe and Little Token can compete for remaining prize money. The Willie Mullins-trained Hopefully the mount of Paul Townend should not be underestimated.
  1. Miss Pernickety
  2. Tucanae
  3. Fort Worth Texas
