Forecasts

Kailee (6/1), Mr Ormsby (15/2), Simiyna (9/1), King Of Leinster (9/1), Vocal Music (10/1), Rapture's Delight (10/1), Waterboy (10/1), Tough Spirit (10/1), Fuwairt (10/1), Smart Stinger (12/1), Bercasa (16/1), Iron Blue (16/1), Delegating (16/1), Descendant (20/1), Daubney's Dream (40/1)

Verdict

Dermot Weld's string seem to have really hit top form of late and his filly SIMIYNA can land the spoils here. She ran really well at Roscommon last time and looks likely to progress further. Kailee was narrowly beaten over C&D twice before not quite running her race at Cork. Tough Spirit is a filly who could have more to come and she is considered also.
  1. Simiyna
