Forecast

Tony The Gent (4/6), Lincoln (4/1), Atlas (9/2), Heavenly Rainbow (11/1), Have A Nice Day (14/1), Red Avenger (20/1), Cosmic Jazz (33/1), Marylebone (50/1), Dillygass (50/1), Olaf's Boy (50/1), Duhallow Noelie (66/1), Oor Jock (100/1), Raise The Tempo (100/1), Rise Again (100/1)

Verdict
Tony The Gent sets the form standard in this race and if running up to his mark he will prove very tough to beat, however his welter burden weight is of some concern as well as his draw. While the likes of the consistent Atlas, who has been contesting better company and thrives in large fields, Heavenly Rainbow and Red Avenger have made their mark at this level before. Preference is for LINCOLN, who found trip on the sharp side at Sligo but has been given significant leniency by the handicapper.
  1. Lincoln
  2. Tony The Gent
