Forecasts

Fill The Tank (7/2), O Connell Street (4/1), Marshalled (15/2), Siberian Star (15/2), Optical Confusion (8/1), Bentham (8/1), Bread And Butter (12/1), Fine Brunello (14/1), Cerberus (14/1), Woodbrook Boy (14/1), Cushinstown Finest (28/1), Moscowsowhat (33/1)

Verdict

O CONNELL STREET has taken well to fences and was in control a long way out when scoring at Perth 9 days ago. This is, admittedly, a bit more competitive, but he's the only one with a progressive profile, so he's an obvious choice to follow up. Optical Confusion, who shaped well at Sligo recently, is the obvious threat, while an improved showing from Cerberus isn't out of the question.

  1. O CONNELL STREET (IRE)
  2. OPTICAL CONFUSION (IRE)
  3. CERBERUS
