Forecast

Finding Nero (11/2), Belle Cora (6/1), High Glory (6/1), Olympic Honour (13/2), Red Sole Diva (7/1), Manard (7/1), Spelga (9/1), Faerie Laws (9/1), Grove Gold (10/1), Cosmic Jazz (10/1), All About Maddy (16/1), Charlie Bit Me (16/1), Seafield (16/1), Han Solo (16/1), Fescue (25/1), Paisean (25/1), Vineyard Sound (33/1), The Lady's Bid (33/1), Wicklow Gale (33/1), Nanafullam (66/1)

Verdict
A very competitive handicap with many of these being out of form. MANARD ran well here last month over 1m and the slight step up in trip should be in his favour. He is off the same mark so may be able to take advantage of that. Cosmic Jazz looks interesting on handicap debut where she is taking a step up in trip, while Finding Nero may be able to build on a good third place finish last time out.
  1. Manard
  2. Cosmic Jazz
  3. Finding Nero
