Forecast

Lincoln (5/1), Drumquina (5/1), Fit For Function (5/1), Pulsating (6/1), Sunset Nova (6/1), A Likely Story (6/1), Above Us Only Sky (7/1), Arnhem (12/1), Rattling Jewel (14/1), Red Cymbal (16/1), Takeachancejimmy (18/1), Farnese (66/1)

Verdict
ABOVE US ONLY SKY may benefit enough by the drop in trip to land the spoils in the closing race of the day. The daughter of Dark Angel could be ready to break her maiden tag at the 17th time of asking following a solid effort in defeat at this venue last month over C&D. The mare will face stiff opposition from the likes of the Denis Hogan-trained Lincoln who appears to be coming to hand at the right time and A Likely Story for trainer Tom McCourt, with the gelding in good spirits since returning to action last month. Pulsating should be considered following her been declared a non-runner at Naas on Saturday.
