Forecast

Dark Magic (5/2), Red Avenger (5/1), Count Of Carabass (11/2), Major Power (6/1), Lily Lily Rose (13/2), Dromod Lad (9/1), Munfallet (12/1), Paris Duvet (12/1), Midnitemudcrabs (14/1), Barend Boy (20/1), Little Camacho (20/1), Pedro De Styles (28/1), Iseebreeze (50/1), Luna's Luck (50/1), Swift Justice (50/1), Just Waterville (66/1), Duquesa Beach (66/1)

Verdict
The drop to 7f for DARK MAGIC could pay dividends as the Invincible Spirit gelding bids to get off the mark on his fourth visit to this venue. The five-year-old has shown a marked improvement in recent starts and can hold off the attentions of C&D winner Major Power and Count Of Carabass as the pair bid to add to their recent success over the combination. Dromod Lad, second of 14 beaten 1L behind Comhghairdeas over C&D earlier this month should not be taken lightly.
  1. Dark Magic
  2. Major Power
