Forecasts

Presenting Dylan (7/4), Zanavi (4/1), Five Helmets (5/1), Golf Marin (6/1), Mc Alpine (7/1), Jody Ted (7/1), Trixie Mc (8/1), Annie Pender (10/1), Hazran (20/1), Fayetta (20/1), Winston Wolfe (28/1), Pi Ahio (80/1), American Image (80/1)

Verdict

FIVE HELMETS could do with jumping better than in the closing stages on his Fairyhouse maiden win earlier this month but has definite scope for better in handicaps if he does and gets the nod for Gavin Cromwell. Golf Marin is another likely improver in handicaps and heads the dangers along with Presenting Dylan and Mc Alpine.
