Forecasts

Apple Crumble (7/4), Raven Rule (2/1), Ilmig (6/1), The Dara Man (8/1), Sicario (10/1), Wicklow Flyer (14/1), Rose Milan (66/1)

Verdict

RAVEN RULE was most unlucky not to make a winning handicap debut at Cork 18 days ago, 3 lengths clear with the race at her mercy when falling heavily at the last, and she can make amends back in a novice if over that experience. Bumper winner Apple Crumble made a positive start over hurdles when second to The Dara Man and can improve past that rival on much better terms.
