Forecast

Cherif De L'Isle (3/1), Moyode Gold (10/3), First Class Return (9/2), Offshore Oscar (8/1), Notice To Close (10/1), Ballea Fox (12/1), Spancil Hill (14/1), Nicole's Milan (16/1), Seskinane (16/1), Citizen Al (28/1), Cala Di Volpe (33/1), The Ballyboys (40/1), Sweet Sting (40/1)

Verdict
MOYODE GOLD has been in fine and consistent form since winning at Fairyhouse in January. Given the lack of genuine contenders in this contest it may pay to side with the mare who has a willing attitude and seems to be still progressing. Cherif De L'Isle really deserves a break from the handicapper but his consistent efforts off little opportunity to drop him a few pounds. Expect him to go close here without winning. Seskinane is another who is a little too much in the grip of the handicapper but that won't stop him running his usual solid race.
  1. Moyode Gold
  2. Cherif De L'Isle
  3. Seskinane
