Betting

Forecast

Drifting Back (4/1), Agent Boru (13/2), Balinaboola Steel (15/2), Young Dev (15/2), Oscar Montel (15/2), Miss Cedille (8/1), Tokyo Getaway (10/1), Ask Heather (11/1), Halsafari (12/1), Fit To Be Tied (16/1), Clash Of D Titans (18/1), Classic Concorde (25/1), Fiveaftermidnight (28/1), Time For Mabel (50/1)

Verdict

BALINABOOLA STEEL is in a rich vein of form and, in a race where most of the others have something to prove, he's taken to follow up his Listowel success following a small rise. Ask Heather would be a danger if she's ready to go on reappearance, while Drifting Back shouldn't be ruled out.

  1. BALINABOOLA STEEL (IRE)
  2. DRIFTING BACK (IRE)
  3. ASK HEATHER (IRE)
