Forecast

Grace To Grace (7/2), Arctic Blaze (4/1), Thefaithfulindian (9/2), Ally Cay (5/1), Emerald Green (6/1), Loingseoir (17/2), Awaasef (10/1), Lucky Phil (16/1), Lighthouse Lady (16/1), Glint Of An Eye (20/1), Wexford Dawn (25/1), Bolero (28/1), Zoffalee (28/1), Maunganui (33/1), Bells Of Thyme (33/1), Stay With Me (33/1), Winston Wolfe (40/1), Van Wert (40/1), Twist (80/1), X' Girl (100/1), Balaclava (150/1)

Verdict

AWAASEF is yet to live up to her pedigree but she was better than the bare result when fourth over 1¼m at Cork in August, wound up for a run when bumping into a rival 2f out and unable to regain momentum. She's bred to be suited by at least this far and is worth another chance. Ally Cay, Grace To Grace and Bells of Thyme head up the dangers.
