Forecasts

Skol (5/2), Shakespeare's Word (11/4), Coach Carter (11/4), Dark Spark (13/2), Justbeyondthemoon (9/1), Any Givin Sunday (10/1), Teuchters Glory (12/1), Pale Blue Dot (16/1), Right Turn Clyde (16/1), Christmas Jumper (25/1), Panic Over (33/1), Colman's Courage (50/1), Wild River Ridge (50/1)

Verdict

It wasn't a major surprise to see SHAKESPEARE'S WORD come up short in a Grade 2 contest at Leopardstown when last seen in February, but his runner-up effort prior to that reads very well and he could well be the way to go on return. Justbeyondthemoon and the Elliott pair Coach Carter and Dark Spark look to be the pick of the newcomers before market clues.

  1. SHAKESPEARE'S WORD
  2. JUSTBEYONDTHEMOON (IRE)
  3. COACH CARTER (IRE)
