Forecasts

Beat Of The Sea (10/3), Gondor (4/1), Shamad (5/1), Anseo (6/1), Berliet Express (7/1), Boston Brahmin (8/1), Brehon Star (17/2), Mullins Cross (10/1), Sadie Yeats (12/1), Lilian Bland (14/1), Lakomet Of Saints (14/1), Kaytana (20/1), Good Bye Milan (25/1), Rose Of Borris (33/1), Quins Court (33/1)

Verdict

Lots of these arrive with question marks against them. BERLIET EXPRESS fared a lot better than his eleventh position suggests at Kilbeggan last time so gets the nod off a falling mark. Beat of The Sea is a long time without a win but is feared most on the back of her good C&D third, with Gondor weighted to have a say too if back on song after his long absence.

  1. BERLIET EXPRESS (IRE)
  2. BEAT OF THE SEA (IRE)
  3. GONDOR (IRE)
