Forecasts

French Fusion (2/1), Amma Grace (9/4), Empress Josephine (3/1), Insinuendo (4/1), Tartlette (11/1), Too Soon To Panic (12/1), Lady Anner (16/1), Getawiggleon (125/1)

Verdict

EMPRESS JOSEPHINE remains with tons of potential despite quickly losing her unbeaten record at Leopardstown and she can get back on track with victory, the step up in trip sure to suit this full-sister to Minding. Amma Grace is just the type to kick on again at 4 for Dermot Weld and is feared. Tartlette is another to consider.

  1. EMPRESS JOSEPHINE (IRE)
