Forecast

Stranagone (15/8), King Of Leinster (11/2), The Game Of Life (7/1), May Peace Prevail (7/1), Roman Warrior (7/1), Lappet (8/1), Make A Challenge (9/1), Port Vauban (16/1), Watchman (25/1), Crest Of A Wave (28/1), Ingelara (50/1), Mighty Jasper (50/1), Cartoon Hero (66/1), Kris Black (66/1), Effernock Fizz (66/1)

Verdict
Stranagone has the best form credentials and is sure to be on the premises once more. We will take a chance on this going to a newcomer however and THE GAME OF LIFE is very interesting. His dam is a half-sister to Dubai World Cup winner Moon Ballad and is clearly bred for this game. Crest Of A Wave should do better.
