Forecast

Southfield Stone (2/9), Genius (5/1), Myboysam (11/1), Super Snipe (12/1), Druide Premier (14/1), Cushuish (20/1), Anniversary Gift (25/1), Zee Man (40/1), Stormy Blues (66/1), Gaelic Poet (100/1), Champagneforoscar (100/1), Born To Boogie (150/1), Duc Du Mee (150/1)

Verdict

Hard to escape the claims of SOUTHFIELD STONE, who already holds a few of these and looks to have been found an ideal opportunity to extend his winning sequence. The selection does have to give weight away all round, which may help Druide Premier get closer this time, while Cushuish can also make the frame if she can take a step forward this time. Support for Myboysam would also be noteworthy in what is a weak race.
  1. Southfield Stone
  2. Druide Premier
  3. Cushuish
