Forecasts

Nimitz (15/8), Commander Won (3/1), Tooreen Katie (7/1), High Street Lady (7/1), Maricruz (7/1), Flicker Flame (9/1), Moonmeister (10/1), My Direction (12/1), Poitin (25/1), Aishling's Secret (40/1), Glenbank King (66/1)

Verdict

The time may be right for COMMANDER WON to turn the tables on Nimitz here with the former 4lb better off for his ¾L defeat here over C&D last month. The pair will face stiff opposition from the solid and consistent Maricruz who will be making her second appearance at the venue here. C&D winners My Direction and Moonmeister give the impression they could be on dangerous marks.
  1. Commander Won
  2. Moonmeister
