Forecast

Daisy's Hollow (4/1), Select Opportunity (9/2), Napoleon Blue (5/1), Myladyrose (5/1), Not So Simple (13/2), Ragin Cajun (9/1), Wherethewindsblow (10/1), She'stherightone (12/1), James Boru (12/1), Balgowlah (18/1), Castle Canny (18/1), Ahgetawayoutadat (20/1), Raleagh Flora (22/1), Frazel Express (25/1), Electricitywork (28/1), Thimbleweed (33/1), Monsieur Bagot (33/1), Giftedtokate (33/1), Castlehume Gold (40/1), Orena Bay (40/1), Fontainbleau (80/1)

Verdict

DAISY'S HOLLOW's record is rather hit and miss but she produced her best effort to date when opening her account at Tipperary on just her second try over 3m and she gets the narrow vote to come out on top again. Napoleon Blue back over hurdles and Select Opportunity are others to consider, whilst one at the foot of the weights, Ragin Cajun also demands a second look on belated return.

  1. DAISY'S HOLLOW (IRE)
  2. NAPOLEON BLUE (IRE)
  3. SELECT OPPORTUNITY (IRE)
