Forecasts

Bestrella (9/4), Celtic Crown (11/4), Capel At Dawn (7/2), Calidus Mirabilis (11/2), Rockview Empress (16/1), Belgoprince (18/1), Crashdaparty (22/1), Overtake (25/1), Kartayaz (28/1), Isaiah (33/1), Brilliant Question (50/1), Blue Sky Thinker (50/1), Mustang Bullitt (50/1)

Verdict

The Johnny Murtagh-trained BESTRELLA can follow up her gutsy win on the AW at Dundalk earlier this month. The daughter of Es Que Love had hinted at a bold bid in a couple of early starts last month as racing returned, before getting off the mark at the fifth time of asking under todays top apprentice Ben Coen. The Joseph O'Brien-trained Calidus Mirabilis has been alluding to a big performance in a couple of starts recently and can prove a big danger here, along with recent Killarney runner-up, Celtic Crown. Capel At Dawn, Belgoprince and Brilliant Question should not be taken lightly with leading apprentices on board.
