Forecast

Dromod Lad (13/2), Farnese (13/2), Global Pass (7/1), Tennessee Wildcat (8/1), Wilderness (8/1), Airgead (10/1), Goodwood Showman (10/1), Munfallet (11/1), Lady Arona (11/1), Crest Of A Wave (14/1), Morph (16/1), Theoneyouare (20/1), Aunty Audrey (20/1), Lady Savanah (22/1), Guiding (22/1), Havana Breeze (33/1), My Lark (33/1), Maggie Thunder (50/1), Descendant (100/1), Loughanlea Lass (N/A), Cracking Name (N/A)

Verdict
A C&D winner in August last year, things didn't pan out for AIRGEAD on his sole outing at Killarney afterwards. There's a good chance he's got more to offer and this ground will suit well. He has also gone well fresh and earns the vote as such. Wilderness is likely to make progress this summer for Johnny Murtagh and merits respect while Farnese is another with scope for better things. Dromod Lad clearly gets on with his claimer rider and should go well, while Morph and Lady Savanah are others deemed capable if on song.
