Forecasts

Derby De Thaix (3/1), Klassy Kay (5/1), Galuppi (11/2), I Will Walk (6/1), Maureen's Star (8/1), Boston Babe (10/1), Electricitywork (10/1), Castlehume (11/1), Mickey Shea (11/1), General Gold (12/1), Durrow Dancer (16/1), Four Country Roads (18/1), Mezyan (20/1), Mashell (22/1), Hellenic Fire (33/1)

Verdict

DERBY DE THAIX is unlikely to remain a maiden in this sphere for much longer judged on his good second at Ballinrobe and this could be the day it finally comes together for him. Galuppi is an obvious contender if in the same form as at Cork. I Will Walk also comes into the reckoning.
