Forecasts

Thomas O'Malley (5/4), Vision D'Ete (5/2), Minnie Dahill (7/1), Richard Strauss (8/1), Little Princess (20/1), Downtown Rebel (25/1), Elzaa (25/1), Sammyjade (33/1), Sonic Wind (33/1), Dan Gun (33/1), Dravid (33/1), Kuiper Belt (66/1)

Verdict

THOMAS O'MALLEY comes off best on Flat form with these rivals and should build on a pleasing start to his hurdles career at Ballinrobe last month. He finished well clear of his more fancied stablemate Richard Strauss on that occasion, and should do again of progressing for the run. The latter is certainly not to be written off and it won't be a surprise if they fight out the finish. Minnie Dahill showed enough in that same contest (ahead of Richard Strauss) to merit respect here while Vision D'ete also showed up well at Cork last month and is capable of progressing.
  1. Thomas O'Malley
  2. Richard Strauss
  3. Minnie Dahill
