Forecasts

The Abbey (5/2), Ruinous (3/1), Ashton Court (7/2), Whatsyourstatus (9/2), Miracle In Medinah (12/1), Back To Bataan (22/1), As The Crow Flies (28/1), Fallen Forest (28/1), Rubiana (40/1), Toast To Thomas (50/1), Doyler's Mate (200/1)

Verdict

Not the strongest finale and perhaps a chance for RUBIANA on chasing bow. The scorpion mare has a point-to-point win on her CV and was second in a maiden hurdle at Limerick in January on second run for this trainer when she showed good determination (winner miles clear). She's a hopeful pick ahead of Ruinous, who ran well over timber at Galway recently. Ashton Court and The Abbey represent good yards and are respected.
