Forecast

Gin Blossom (4/7), Lemista (4/1), Haparanda (6/1), Magic Chegaga (8/1), Blackcatblackitten (12/1), Curious Bride (14/1), Thundering Nights (25/1), Celtic Crown (33/1), Bestrella (50/1), Lough Swilly Pearl (66/1), Believe Me Too (66/1), Susan's Pride (66/1), Princess Grace (66/1), Famous Minx (66/1), Rock Chica (100/1)

Verdict
GIN BLOSSOM was doing her best work in the closing stages of her only racecourse appearance at The Curragh in September and finished strongly from well off the pace to finish second. There seems to be no reason whey she can't land this with that experience under her belt if handling the expected heavy ground. Another with racecourse experience is Lemista who not been disgraced in two runs to date and is entitled to improve. Both Dermot Weld's entrants Haparanda and Magic Chegaga are both well bred and a look in the market is recommended.
  1. Gin Blossom
  2. Haparanda
  3. Lemista
