Betting

Forecast

Not So Simple (3/1), Feyan (5/1), Yeat's Encore (6/1), You Say Nothing (15/2), Spancil Hill (9/1), Moyode Lady (12/1), Dundeedy Lad (18/1), Soi Cowboy (18/1), Ardhill (18/1), Oscer Romero (18/1), Dancing Jeremy (20/1), Sizing Malbay (22/1), Lucrezia Borja (25/1), Padraic O Conaire (28/1), Lesssaidthebetter (33/1), Westmead (33/1), Cosmic Rock (40/1), A Girl Like Me (50/1), Scanimax (50/1), Roscomroe (66/1)

Verdict

YOU SAY NOTHING left his qualifying runs well behind when sixth on handicap debut here 17 days ago, and while he has to prove his stamina over this far, the application of a tongue tie may help his finishing effort. He gets the vote, with Feyan and Yeat's Encore solid opponents.

  1. YOU SAY NOTHING (IRE)
  2. FEYAN (IRE)
  3. YEAT'S ENCORE (IRE)
