Forecasts

Verdict

Top weight EIMEAR wont get it all her own way in front as the veteran 12-year-old Black Spot On may make the early running. The early pace of the contest could work to the advantage of the six-year-old who can get off the mark over hurdles at the 10th time of asking for connections following a number of solid and consistent efforts since May. Winner 12 months ago Lady Of The Sea can go well again but her 7lb higher mark may halt her bid for a second win in the contest. Northern Emperor, Officers Mess and Gunfire Reef can all battle for prize money.
  1. Eimear
  2. Lady Of The Sea
