Forecast

King Of Athens (9/4), Crossfirehurricane (5/2), Howling Wolf (9/2), Choice Of Mine (11/2), Battle Of Liege (7/1), In The Present (8/1), New World Tapestry (8/1), Orchid Gardens (20/1), Wonder Elzaam (20/1), Dutch Admiral (66/1)

Verdict
The Joseph O'Brien-trained CROSSFIREHURRICANE can continue his unbeaten run following a solid performance at this track earlier this month over 7f. The Kitten's Joy colt won with plenty in hand last time out in the 12 runner contest with Orchid Gardens 3½L back in second. Winner at this venue when last seen in December, In The Present and the Aiden O'Brien-trained Lingfield winner, King Of Athens can emerge as the biggest dangers. Progressive types New World Tapestry and C&D winner Choice Of Mine should not be taken lightly in this tight contest.
  1. Crossfirehurricane
