Forecasts

Verdict

The drop in trip should be perfect for HOLY MOTIVATION, who recorded a career-best despite being collared late on at Tipperary earlier in the week on handicap bow. Davy Russell is on board again now and, dropped in distance, they should be hard to beat from an unchanged mark. Hard to get excited about many of the others. Mash Potato has been competitive in low-grade affairs in Britain lately, while Court Adjourned made the frame here last time and might be capable of something similar.
