Betting

Forecast

Optum (10/3), Erins Benefit (9/2), Sullane Hill (11/2), Tikkanen Express (11/2), Live Every Day (6/1), Fou Diligence (7/1), Karen's Gift (9/1), R'evelyn Pleasure (14/1), Room To Roam (16/1), Insane Bolt (22/1), Western Boy (25/1), Chief Of Police (25/1), Port Rashid (25/1), Danse Away (28/1), Thegoaheadman (33/1), In A Pinch (33/1)

Verdict

KARENS GIFT looked highly promising before an excusable run (saddle slipped) at this course last time, so she's taken to get back on the up and gain her first handicap success on just her fourth outing. Erins Benefit is a clear danger on handicap debut and Optum shouldn't be ruled out.

  1. KAREN'S GIFT (IRE)
  2. ERINS BENEFIT (IRE)
  3. OPTUM (IRE)
