Forecast

Sure Cert (7/2), Lady Savanah (4/1), Everyhouronthehour (6/1), Pulse Of Shanghai (15/2), Fugacious (15/2), Amarantha (17/2), Gregory's Gift (14/1), Lady Boomerang (14/1), Acari (14/1), Cobb And Co (22/1), Overtake (28/1), Characteristic (50/1), Clear Quartz (125/1)

Verdict

SURE CERT showed a good attitude to get off the mark at Fairyhouse on Monday and may be capable of going in again with further improvement on the cards. Fugacious is a long-standing maiden but he arrives in form and can figure again. Lady Savannah is another who has been knocking on the door of late, while Amarantha could also get involved if recapturing the level of her penultimate C&D third.

  1. SURE CERT (IRE)
  2. FUGACIOUS (IRE)
  3. LADY SAVANAH (IRE)
