Betting

Forecast

Irish Poseidon (15/8), Cliara (10/3), Erytheia (4/1), Sleepy Head (11/2), Clonard Abbey (6/1), Stellify (6/1), Joe's Joy (11/1), Stay With Me (16/1), The Abbey (18/1), Auma (18/1), Donoch (22/1), Solar Heat (33/1), Dani's Boy (33/1), Mountain Fox (40/1), Maccliff (100/1), Rizannon (N/A), British Art (N/A)

Verdict

Preference in this competitive handicap is for SLEEPY HEAD, who shaped as though returning to the boil over C&D on her third start following a 16-month layoff and she has been given a chance by the assessor (now 7 lb below last winning mark). The in-form Irish Poseidon is an obvious danger, while Erytheia, Clonard Abbey and Stellify, a recent winner at the Curragh, are others to consider.

  1. SLEEPY HEAD (IRE)
  2. IRISH POSEIDON (GER)
  3. ERYTHEIA (IRE)
