Forecast

Birdie Blitz (10/3), Hell On Earth (7/1), Shar Whats Therush (7/1), Lagenod (7/1), Dark Decade (17/2), Cousin Harry (10/1), Pino Boy (12/1), Toushan (14/1), Ballymadun (14/1), Lady Mccabe (16/1), Offshore Oscar (16/1), My Newbrook Rose (16/1), Benefit North (22/1), Whoyakodding (25/1), Ricky Langford (25/1), Bracka Lily (25/1), Plentiful (25/1), Walk Me Home (25/1), Punchers Path (33/1), James Boru (33/1), Golden Silence (66/1)

Verdict
A big field here but on the basis of recent form very few of them actually appeal. After her very pleasing third at Gowran latest BIRDIE BLITZ gets the vote and the extra 4f here should only be a benefit to her. Recent C&D winner Lagenod may now be at the mercy of the handicapper to some degree but few of these are even in the ballpark of their current marks so he may still go close. There are a host of handicap debutants and in a weak race it's highly likely one or two improve. Most appealing of them is Lady McCabe.
  1. Birdie Blitz
  2. Lagenod
  3. Lady Mccabe
