Forecast

Severus Alexander (4/1), Bread And Butter (9/2), Accidental Rebel (9/2), Kilmurry (13/2), Hell On Earth (10/1), Odds Or Evens (12/1), Fassbender (14/1), Silk Worm (16/1), Cappuccino Man (16/1), Walking In Memphis (16/1), Benefit North (20/1), Cousin Harry (28/1), Natural Breeze (33/1), All Class (33/1), Dreal Deal (50/1), Dessie Deschamps (66/1), Dollar Value (66/1), My Peggy (100/1)

Verdict
Fourth of 20 to Wajaaha (due to run 2.10 today) at Leopardstown on his first run for Gavin Cromwell was sufficiently encouraging for SEVERUS ALEXANDER to be given the vote, despite this longer trip. Bread And Butter’s presence makes Cromwell’s hand even stronger, as he too is a leading contender following his second at Gowran Park. Some of their rivals, such as Silk Worm, are unexposed. Others, including Accidental Rebel and Cousin Harry, have bits of form that make them interesting.
  1. Severus Alexander
  2. Bread And Butter
  3. Silk Worm
