Forecast

Badness Backfires (4/1), Fair Minded (4/1), Fassbender (5/1), Romella (11/2), Dave And Bernie (8/1), Resurrected Duke (8/1), Westernerona (8/1), Oskar High (11/1), Moghram (14/1), Lucia's Bob (18/1), Knockraha Boss (20/1), Love The Melody (25/1), Lightsider (25/1), Castlehume (33/1), Getaway Pippa (40/1), Focus Well (66/1), Royal Alto (66/1)

Verdict

DAVE AND BERNIE has made a positive start over hurdles, filling second spot in maidens the last twice, and he makes plenty of appeal now going handicapping. Oskar High, Romella and Badness Backfires are other likely sorts.

  1. DAVE AND BERNIE (IRE)
  2. OSKAR HIGH (IRE)
  3. ROMELLA (IRE)
