Forecasts

Balkito (7/2), Sir Bob (7/2), Seangoell (7/2), Owl Creek Bridge (5/1), Sovereign Gold (5/1), Wishmoor (12/1), Hilltop Supreme (16/1), Johnnys Girl (66/1), Killisk Ben Rose (66/1)

Verdict

BALKITO showed improved form to get off the mark at Thurles last month, relishing the longer trip to beat a couple of subsequent winners, and he remains unexposed over this sort of distance. Sovereign Gold is feared most ahead of Sir Bob.

  1. BALKITO (FR)
  2. SOVEREIGN GOLD (IRE)
  3. SIR BOB (IRE)
