Forecasts

Good Man Turk (4/1), Roped In (9/2), Battle Of Benburb (6/1), Killinure Lass (13/2), Well Polly (13/2), Naturally Blond (8/1), Rose Mahler (8/1), Dicebox (12/1), Homard De Chausey (20/1), Lady L'lerom (22/1), Humps And Bumps (33/1), Cottage Artist (40/1), Athagabhain (50/1), Coconoir (50/1), Getaclan (66/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (66/1), Go Large (100/1)

Verdict

BATTLE OF BENBURB is one to be interested in again at this level after his good third at Killarney 3 weeks ago and gets a narrow vote in this wide-open handicap. Rose Mahler, a good second at Tipparary on her latest start, Well Polly and easy Killarney scorer Naturally Blond head the many dangers.

  1. BATTLE OF BENBURB (IRE)
  2. ROSE MAHLER (IRE)
  3. WELL POLLY (IRE)
