Forecasts

Shanroe Street (7/4), Buffalo Ballet (11/4), Knocknamona (3/1), Strong Economy (9/2), Calivigny (N/A), Central Flame (N/A), Teddy Tee (N/A), Hills Of Dubai (N/A), Chu Chu Percy (N/A)

Verdict

It would be quite easy to give all four a chance here and this quartet form an intriguing race. There is no doubt that Knocknamona is improving but the Hammond yard are not in the same form now as when he completed his hat-trick and that might tip the balance in the direction of the others. Buffalo Ballet should be able to win over fences but his concentration appears to slip during races and the leaders can get away from him. Shanroe Street is another who you can make a case for but his mark looks a little high and STRONG ECONOMY might be able to win this given a chance over 3m for the first time over fences around a course that he acts well around.
  1. Strong Economy
