Forecasts

Dorydalis (10/11), Brace Yourself (5/2), Smoking Gun (7/2), Lily's Gem (12/1), Boston Burglar (25/1), Daenerys Stormborn (25/1), Never Lie Down (25/1), Ruthless Article (33/1)

Verdict

BRACE YOURSELF can make a winning rules debut by taking the concluding bumper on the card. The selection is out of a mare who is a half-sister to a useful bumper performer and Noel Meade's charge can get the better of Dorydalis who ran well in a highly competitive contest on rules debut in the spring. Of the remainder Smoking Gun hails from a leading yard and can finish third on debut.
