Forecasts

Gars De Sceaux (9/4), Velvet Elvis (5/2), Ragnar Lodbrok (4/1), Whirling Dervish (7/1), Born Patriot (8/1), Indiana Jones (8/1), Red Gerry (12/1), Carrolls Cottage (14/1)

Verdict

VELVET ELVIS and Gars De Sceaux both remain open to improvement and are expected to come to the fore in this competitive novice. Marginal preference is for the former, who did the job well from the front at Thurles last month and he will take plenty of stopping. Ragnar Lodbrok also enters the reckoning now that his sights are lowered and Whirling Dervish is also worthy of consideration.
