Forecasts

Creeping Ivy (11/4), Russian Roulette (9/2), Like An Open Book (7/1), Mullinavat (7/1), Sierra Law (8/1), Golden Poet (8/1), Youngnedofthehill (10/1), Toor General (10/1), Mountain Kingdom (12/1), Lex Talionis (14/1), My Betty (16/1), Bakers Street (16/1), Storm Rising (16/1), Brog Deas Nua (20/1), Do Na Paisti (20/1), Last Garrison (20/1), Creative Talent (25/1), Voluptueux (33/1)

Verdict

It is only a matter of time before Creeping Ivy opens her account but she faces a tough task in conceding weight to SIERRA LAW. The recent Down Royal winner bumped into a much improved sort last time and, with that form receiving a significant boost since, he looks favourably treated. Like An Open Book and Golden Poet are others to consider.
  1. Sierra Law
  2. Creeping Ivy
  3. Like An Open Book
