Forecast

Satin Sun (9/2), Gondor (5/1), Final Orders (11/2), Glebe Girl (13/2), Lunastar (7/1), Vitudurum (7/1), Aliym (17/2), Capture The Action (9/1), Cornerkova (9/1), Saol Iontach (10/1), Sunchyme (12/1), Caridadi (14/1), Trans Wood (22/1), Ballycloven Beat (25/1), Mick Mixy (33/1), Dasmyhoss (100/1)

Verdict

A winner at Gowran in October, LUNASTAR looked set to run at least as well when falling at the last at Sligo 4 weeks ago (joint leader at the time). She gets the nod to resume winning ways in the hope she's none the worse for those exertions. Recent Wexford scorer Final Orders and Saol Iontach are others to consider.
