Forecasts

Gendarme (9/4), All The Angels (11/2), Cornerkova (7/1), Jack Holiday (7/1), Time And Times (9/1), Drummer (14/1), Still Alive (16/1), Novano (18/1), Eaton Lady (20/1), Lopito (22/1), Brosna Aran (22/1), Nomadic Star (25/1), Go Battle (40/1), Kilashee (40/1), Alterno (50/1), Poetica (50/1), I'vedoneitall (66/1), Western Dreaming (66/1)

Verdict

GENDARME justified market support as he ran out a good winner of a big-field handicap at Tramore (2m) 18 days ago, notably jumping and travelling well, and gets the nod to come out on top again. Time And Times and Cornerkova are others also fancied to get involved.
