Forecasts

Lancaster House (9/4), Know It All (4/1), Fiscal Rules (5/1), Lustown Baba (13/2), Current Option (15/2), Speak In Colours (12/1), Surrounding (12/1), Brad The Brief (14/1), Gustavus Weston (25/1), Free Solo (25/1), Wonder Elzaam (40/1), Comfort Line (50/1)

Verdict

LUSTOWN BABA scored twice here towards the end of last year and should strip fitter for her reappearance at Cork, she gets the nod in a wide-open Group 3. Last year's winner Lancaster House is another obvious player and Speak in Colours can't be discounted.

  1. LUSTOWN BABA (IRE)
  2. LANCASTER HOUSE (IRE)
  3. SPEAK IN COLOURS
