Betting

Forecast

Erica's Joy (2/1), Ben Thomson (85/40), The Greek (9/2), Eric Carmen (15/2), Anna Van Go (15/2), Boston Brahmin (10/1), Alvarez (12/1), Staging Post (16/1), Justbecool (16/1), Lyla Garrity (20/1), Tullyhogue Fort (25/1)

Verdict

ERICA'S JOY clearly wasn't quite right at Kilbeggan on debut but, given he was sent off at a short price for his top yard that day, he's worth another chance to show what he's capable of in a winnable race. The Greek should be suited by the step up in trip, so he should build on his debut, and Ben Thomson is the clear pick of the newcomers.

  1. ERICA'S JOY (IRE)
  2. THE GREEK (IRE)
  3. BEN THOMSON (IRE)
