Forecast

Conversant (4/1), Tio Esteban (6/1), Rule The Sea (7/1), Dee Sprinter (7/1), Lady Scathach (8/1), William Ashford (10/1), Tuamhain (12/1), Drombeg Duke (12/1), Mr Whoppit (14/1), Kody Ridge (14/1), Eyeoweyou (14/1), Out On Friday (16/1), Goodwood Showman (16/1), Rockview Roman (18/1), Kasbah (20/1), Procurator (25/1), Dragon Belle (33/1), Mixed Media (66/1), No Trouble (66/1)

Verdict

The Denis Hogan-trained CONVERSANT won for the second time in his career when landing a Listowel handicap over 6½f on soft ground earlier this month off a 5lb lower mark and can go on to win again here. The Zebedee gelding can hold off the attentions of C&D winner Lady Scathach, Eyeoweyou in first-time blinkers and Rule The Sea for trainer Tracey Collins who got off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking when landing a Tipperary 1m apprentice handicap off a 7lb lower mark last month.
  1. Conversant
  2. Lady Scathach
  3. Rule The Sea
