Forecasts

Breaking Story (5/2), Toshizou (10/3), Comfort Line (6/1), My Holy Fox (6/1), Spanish Tenor (8/1), Morph Speed (8/1), Starting Monday (8/1), Business (9/1), New Hill (11/1), Soaring Monarch (14/1), Laughifuwant (22/1), Onlyhuman (22/1)

Verdict

TOSHIZOU shaped well at the Curragh on the second of three starts last term and, while his final one was a touch underwhelming, he's in good hands and fancied to get back on the up after 7 months off. Spanish Tenor is respected after a successful return at Naas and the four-timer seeking Business should play a part.

  1. TOSHIZOU (IRE)
  2. SPANISH TENOR (IRE)
  3. BUSINESS (FR)
