Forecast

Foveros (5/2), Tonkinese (6/1), Sayo (6/1), Juliet Rose (13/2), Lyrical Attraction (7/1), Monoxide (10/1), Carried (11/1), No Trouble (16/1), Rock On Seamie (16/1), Yulong Voice (18/1), Politicise (20/1), Persian Lion (20/1), Maria Christina (22/1), Isotope (25/1), Cautious Approach (33/1), Narynkol (50/1), Guinevere (50/1), Wooster (80/1), Trump Card (100/1), Causey Arch (200/1), Best Not Argue (250/1)

Verdict
Monoxide is just the type to thrive with Ger Lyons while Foveros has won several times over hurdles since arriving from France and could be let in leniently on first Flat start for WP Mullins, who also has 145-rated hurdler Sayo. Tonkinese has been building towards a win and has a fine young rider up, while Lyrical Attraction and Juliet Rose (both up in trip) are considered. Best Not Argue could threaten at a big price as he's capable fresh but the nod goes to MARIA CHRSTINA for Dermot Weld in the Moyglare silks. She won a Naas maiden over this trip in November and goes into handicapping after a spin around here in a Group 1 this month.
  1. Maria Christina
  2. Foveros
  3. Tonkinese
