Forecast

Mean Fomhair (2/1), Silver Service (5/1), Tresorier (13/2), Baladiya (8/1), Stormy Belle (12/1), Ducky Mallon (14/1), Dundory (14/1), Atlas (14/1), Sonaiyla (16/1), Castletownshend (16/1), Nordic Passage (16/1), Sagittarius Rising (20/1), San Andreas (20/1), St Brelades Bay (33/1)

Verdict
SILVER SERVICE is finishing the turf season in style and gives the impression there could be more to come today over 7f and gets the nod over the consistent Mean Fomhair who also shapes as though this could be the ideal trip. Tresorier ran better last time and completes the short list.
  1. Silver Service
  2. Mean Fomhair
  3. Tresorier
