Forecasts

Ffion (9/4), Paws For Thought (7/2), Cliffcake (13/2), Melody Of Life (15/2), Prince Of Bel Lir (8/1), Poet's Magic (17/2), Gabrial The Devil (10/1), Yanifer (14/1), Broken Spear (16/1), Hathlool (25/1), Mighty Gurkha (25/1), Little Boy Blue (25/1), Royal Musketeer (40/1), Mossbawn (40/1)

Verdict

CLIFFCAKE can boast an excellent strike rate for one of his ability and, with stall 3 an ideal place to attack, he makes as much appeal as any of these. Ffion is well weighted if getting a good pace to aim at, with Poet's Magic completing the shortlist.

  1. CLIFFCAKE (IRE)
  2. FFION
  3. POET'S MAGIC
