Forecasts

Posh Trish (9/4), Grageelagh Girl (11/4), Pineapple Rush (11/2), Holding Pattern (6/1), Outofthisworld (6/1), Moonlight Escape (7/1), Secret Escape (10/1), Dory (12/1), Rose Of Cimarron (16/1), Presenting Pearl (25/1), Glenmona (25/1), Lady Marwah (25/1)

Verdict

A really competitive mares' bumper in which Ireland have two strong representatives in Moonlight Escape and Holding Pattern. Both are likely to attract market support and are considered, along with Grageelagh Girl and Posh Trish who are closely matched on Aintree form. The selection, though, is OUTOFTHISWORLD, who was particularly impressive on debut at Market Rasen and represents a stable which could hardly be in better form.
  1. Outofthisworld
  2. Grageelagh Girl
  3. Holding Pattern
