Forecast

Hopefully (3/1), Winsor Vixen (4/1), Deauville Society (9/2), Arthur's Baby (11/2), Echoes Of Family (7/1), Shes Gold (17/2), Slainte And Thanks (9/1), Sweet Cassie (11/1), Aunt Eileen (16/1), Quarry Lil (16/1), Faerie Laws (28/1), Doonbeg Glory (33/1), Boston Babe (40/1), Durrow Dancer (50/1), Myanne (50/1), Creadan Belle (66/1)

Verdict
Willie Mullins doesn't have too may runners at Cork; especially in August but his charge HOPEFULLY is fancied after her much improved run at Tramore last time out. Slainte And Thanks who won when last over hurdles looks an obvious danger ahead of Winsor Vixen and Sweet Cassie who are both in decent form.
  1. Hopefully

  3. Winsor Vixen
