Forecasts

Bal De Rio (7/4), Nero Rock (3/1), Gun Merchant (3/1), Malbas (7/1), Jerry Russell (9/1), Rian Thomas (25/1), Gagas Horse (50/1), Ballinruddy (150/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these horses have a bit to prove but one who doesn't is BAL DE RIO. He already has some encouraging efforts over timber, but his solid defeat in a handicap at the Galway Festival in late July suggests that there could still be plenty more to come. Nero Rock has finally strung two encouraging races together and may improve from his recent effort at Cork, while Gun Merchant and Jerry Russell have some modest ability, but looks to be slightly up against it on the ratings.
