Forecasts

Saol Iontach (7/2), Magic Piper (5/1), Call Me Merry (5/1), Diaspora (6/1), Aliym (13/2), Gipsi Joe (13/2), Lily Light Foot (7/1), Massons Castle (10/1), King And Queen (12/1), X' Girl (12/1), Lady L'lerom (20/1), Claire's Charm (22/1), Frazel Express (25/1), Thimbleweed (25/1), My Peggy (33/1), Go Battle (80/1)

Verdict

A very trappy affair with the narrow vote in favour of SAOL IONTACH. A long-standing maiden, she at least took a step back in the right direction on the back of 3 months off when fourth at Clonmel in April and may well sharpen up for that effort. Call Me Merry and Massons Castle head up the dangers, whilst King And Queen is worth monitoring closely in the betting.

  1. SAOL IONTACH (IRE)
  2. CALL ME MERRY (IRE)
  3. MASSONS CASTLE
