Forecasts

Look Closer (2/1), Little Folke (5/2), Bluegrass Princess (4/1), Bold Emperor (6/1), Creative Talent (8/1), Bensachuine (25/1), Oromo (100/1), Sierra Law (100/1)

Verdict

There are plenty in with chances in what appears to be hot little race. Little Folke got off the mark in good style at Tramore last month and probably boasts the best form in the book coming here while it would be folly to discount recent C&D winner Look Closer in his attempt to follow up. Bluegrass Princess has some potential for place money now reverting back to hurdles but the selection is BOLD EMPEROR, who easily grabbed a Limerick maiden last time out on just his second start since arriving from France. There could be more to come from him and he can land this intriguing contest with some further improvement.
