Forecasts

Indian Admiral (7/2), Added Bonus (5/1), Elite Des Mottes (11/2), Clarens (6/1), Fit To Be Tied (7/1), Ricky Bobby (17/2), Castlegrange (9/1), Choir Practice (10/1), Aunty Audrey (18/1), Millford Sound (20/1), Roisins Ciara (20/1), Ballinoe Biden (20/1), Name Me Famous (28/1), Lake Chad (50/1), Bergentown (100/1)

Verdict

INDIAN ADMIRAL should have more to offer for the Henry de Bromhead yard so he's narrowly preferred to fellow last-time-out handicap scorer Ricky Bobby. Choir Practice rates a likely improver in handicaps after her Listowel maiden success and is also on the shortlist.

  1. INDIAN ADMIRAL
  2. RICKY BOBBY (IRE)
  3. CHOIR PRACTICE
