Forecasts

Walking The Walk (7/2), Golden Ferret (9/2), Highstreetfashion (11/2), Follow The Crowd (7/1), Keenaghan Lass (17/2), Shantou Sisu (9/1), Majavango (12/1), Howaya Aoife (14/1), Hollybank King (14/1), Zalika (16/1), Nabraska (20/1), Meehall (20/1), Zagnzig (25/1), Drummullagh Rocky (25/1), Balbir Du Mathan (40/1)

Verdict

The suspicion remains that FOLLOW THE CROWD is capable of a good deal better than he has been able to show to date, and he is appealing on his handicap debut in this sphere. Drummullagh Rocky would have every chance if on-song, but he has offered little on each of his last three starts and bigger threats may be posed by Shantou Sisu and Walking The Walk.

  1. FOLLOW THE CROWD (IRE)
  2. SHANTOU SISU (IRE)
  3. WALKING THE WALK (IRE)
