Forecasts

Passing Trade (5/2), Reverberation (11/4), Trueba (6/1), Out On Friday (8/1), Plum Perfect (8/1), Paris Duvet (10/1), Lady Savanah (10/1), Mk Drama (16/1), Eyeoweyou (22/1), Descendant (40/1), Cracking Name (50/1), Pempie (66/1), Hes Our Music (125/1)

Verdict

None are more likely to run well than Passing Trade but winning remains a burden on her and she's vulnerable as such. No such worries for Reverberation, bidding for a hat-trick under Gavin Ryan and unlikely to go down without a fight. Trueba was unlucky here last time and has paid a price in defeat so preference is for PARIS DUVET. Henry De Bromhead's filly has form at the track and shaped nicely on reappearance over C&D 17 days ago. The weight claimed by Mikey O'Connor is a big help here and the rider may get a first turf winner on a horse he knows well.
  1. Paris Duvet
  2. Reverberation
  3. Passing Trade
