Forecasts

Eagle Ridge (9/4), Oscar Ceremony (11/4), Brotherly Company (10/3), Exit To Where (7/2), Buckled (7/1), Shanroe Street (15/2), Acdc (12/1), Racing Pulse (14/1), Danboru (16/1), Emirat De Catana (18/1), Damiens Dilemma (50/1)

Verdict

A few with chances but EAGLE RIDGE looked well ahead of his mark when an impressive C&D scorer earlier in the month so is taken to defy a 7 lb penalty. Brotherly Company is sure to provide a stern test on the back of his own recent victory here with Oscar Ceremony another with good course form to consider in a competitive handicap.

  3. OSCAR CEREMONY (IRE)
