Forecast

Heliac (11/8), Laura Bullion (3/1), Defining Battle (7/2), Sky Seven (4/1), Millswyn (5/1), Leagan Gaeilge (9/1)

Verdict

The manner of the win of HELIAC at Cork, in May over a similar trip, left no doubt that there was plenty left in the tank in the shadows of the post. The Ger Lyons-trained filly can improve again in this company to see off the attentions of potentially progressive type, Laura Bullion for the Noel Meade yard and Curragh third Sky Seven.
