Forecast

Takarengo (9/4), X' Girl (10/3), Formal Order (7/2), Mufarrej (7/1), Marwari (10/1), Ferrum (10/1), Border Battle (12/1), Vivalicious (20/1), Stay In (66/1), King Citric (100/1), Spirit Of Dawn (100/1)

Verdict
The Johnny Murtagh-trained FORMAL ORDER is clearly better than his last run at the Galway festival in July and can win for the first time in six career starts. Takarengo, second of 24 at the Curragh last month in a career best effort can emerge as the biggest danger, while X' Girl, running well in defeat last month and the Dermot Weld pair of Marwari and Mufarrej are deserving of further consideration.
  1. Formal Order
  2. Takarengo
  3. X' Girl
