Forecasts

Amazing Emma (4/1), Arnhem (11/2), Affable (6/1), Cityman (8/1), Young Angel (9/1), Screen Siren (10/1), Provocateuse (14/1), Jered Maddox (14/1), Brave Display (14/1), Chocquinto (16/1), No Speed Limit (18/1), Herb Of Grace (18/1), Fine Distraction (25/1), Woodrow (33/1), Hodd's Girl (40/1)

Verdict

Plenty with chances but AFFABLE arrives at the top of her game and can register a third victory of the summer having not enjoyed the rub of the green when third in her hat-trick bid at Fairyhouse last week. Brave Display is another in great nick and he can boast a C&D success too so is next on the list, with the thriving Amazing Emma a serious contender too.

  1. AFFABLE
  2. BRAVE DISPLAY (IRE)
  3. AMAZING EMMA (IRE)
