Forecast

Yeat's Encore (4/1), Fly De Megaudais (9/2), Working Capitol (5/1), Feyan (7/1), Fair Minded (8/1), Rossmore's Pride (10/1), Still Alive (10/1), Echoes Of Family (12/1), Influential Lady (14/1), Fortfield Lady (16/1), Roses Queen (25/1), Liclash (25/1), Molten Gold (25/1), You Say Nothing (33/1), Peace Party (33/1), Chosen Flower (40/1), Puddymore (50/1), English Pale (80/1), Focus Well (80/1), Moonlight Glory (N/A)

Verdict

WORKING CAPITOL showed improved form when runner-up on his Clonmel handicap debut in January, and there may be more still to come for his new yard, so he gets the nod. Fly de Megaudais drops back down in trip after not getting home at Ballinrobe and needs considering, along with Yeat's Encore, who wasted no time in getting back to form at Listowel 11 days ago.
