Forecasts

Sharps Choice (5/4), Great Khan (3/1), Atlantic Breaker (11/2), Canny Tom (7/1), Gleesons Tipp (12/1), Thecraicisninety (12/1), Storm Racer (16/1), Oath Breaker (20/1), A Touch Of Sparkle (25/1), Sea Bank (25/1), Ajabindejaw (25/1), Basilisk (33/1), Boytonrath (66/1), Linkup (66/1), Morpurgo (66/1), Hannah Huxwell (66/1), Dubai Flyer (66/1), Scotch Quay (100/1)

Verdict

The unlucky Sharps Choice has a great chance to put things right here but GREAT KHAN would hold a similar chance on their Kilbeggan form and can confirm it here. Atlantic Breaker is running with consistency and can get in the money. Canny Tom and Basilisk are others to consider.
  1. Great Khan
