Forecasts

Granite City Doc (5/2), Firlinfeu (7/2), Rare Groove (4/1), Regal Mirage (4/1), An Fear Ciuin (9/2), Stanley (7/1), Monaco Rose (8/1), It's Never Enough (11/1), Mac O'Polo (16/1)

Verdict

Trainer Keith Dalgleish won this last year and his new recruit Stanley is an interesting sort on his debut for the yard despite not having won last year, the market may provide some clues to what is expected from him. Of the two three-year-olds Firlinfeu is the pick with this trip expected to suit although he may face some pace pressure here and needs a more controlled pace-setting ride to play a part this time. Granite City Doc faces a tougher task but Mac O’Polo deserves respect in this sort of contest having looked a little luckless so far. REGAL MIRAGE will appreciate a return to Hamilton where he is 3-3 having run some sound enough races of late at other venues.
  1. Regal Mirage
