Forecast

San Andreas (5/6), No Needs Never (15/8), Laugh A Minute (8/1), Black Magic Woman (8/1), Insignia Of Rank (16/1), Drombeg Dream (33/1)

Verdict
Trainer Joseph O'Brien hold a strong hand here and can land the spoils with the four-year-old NO NEEDS NEVER. The lightly raced colt won a Listed contest over C&D back in 2018 before missing most of last season. Second of eight on return to action over 1m at this course last month, the son of No Nay Never can get the better of stablemate San Andreas, and the intriguing former Roger Varian Group 3 second, Laugh A Minute who makes his debut for the Adrian McGuinness team.
