Forecasts

Sounds Of Spring (7/2), Earls (9/2), Pretty Boy Floyd (9/2), Shelly Banks (8/1), Gegenpressing (9/1), Mi Esperanza (10/1), Cleveleys (11/1), Jon Riggens (12/1), Abeona (12/1), Improving (18/1), Nordic Passage (25/1), Verhoyen (25/1), Shabaaby (33/1), Brushwork (125/1)

Verdict

Another very competitive race and SHELLY BANKS may prove to be the best option. She's still progressing and could gain her second career victory here following her excellent run behind Pretty Boy Floyd at The Curragh last time. Verhoyen is always a danger in these events and has to be taken seriously. Sounds of Spring is another that can't be ruled out.

  1. SHELLY BANKS (IRE)
  2. VERHOYEN
  3. SOUNDS OF SPRING (IRE)
