Forecast

In Your Shadow (15/8), Eimear (7/2), Woodbrook Boy (9/2), Shannon Fields (6/1), Memories Remain (9/1), Happie Days (11/1), Cailean's Angel (16/1), Caddy Shack (16/1), Mrs Davies (20/1), Da Big Fella (20/1), Trickey Trix (22/1), Nameloc (22/1), She'stherightone (25/1), Clancypantz (33/1), My First Symphony (40/1), Sang Tiger (50/1), Fontainbleau (80/1)

Verdict

Progressive chaser IN YOUR SHADOW returns to hurdling from a potentially very lenient mark, so he earns the vote. Shannon Fields ought to give another good account, while it's worth forgiving Eimear's last run given she was reported to be coughing post race.

  1. IN YOUR SHADOW (IRE)
  2. SHANNON FIELDS (IRE)
  3. EIMEAR (IRE)
