Forecast

Harvest Day (5/4), Highly Approved (4/1), High Susie (11/2), Medici Oro (6/1), Boomerang Betty (10/1), Watching Spirits (10/1)

Verdict

Mick Appleby won this contest last year and Watching Spirits has improved since joining the trainer's stable. First-time cheekpieces could also eke out improvement but preference is for HIGH SUSIE who improved markedly on handicap debut last time. She ought to find this easier than the races she's been running in at Dundalk and Oisin Murphy would appear to be a significant jockey booking. Harvest Day will find this race tougher than her most recent assignment but she may be able to build on that success and can't be ruled out.
  1. High Susie
  2. Watching Spirits
  3. Harvest Day
