Forecast

Friary Gold (15/8), Zinat (11/2), Midnight Geisha (13/2), Sweet Cassie (7/1), Wildewood (8/1), Doyouthinkso (10/1), Storm Flight (11/1), Casamari Abbey (12/1), Costly Diamond (14/1), Blackyellowred (16/1), Trenchtown Rock (16/1), Isosceles (16/1), Daring Decree (25/1), Gendarme (28/1), Backintheboom (33/1), Stadius (66/1), Amber Run (66/1)

Verdict
SWEET CASSIE was runner-up at a fancy price on her seasonal return at Limerick recently and will have sound claims if repeating that now. Friary Gold, behind the selection in fourth that day, has since found only one too strong at Kilbeggan and needs consideration despite his long-standing maiden status. Likewise, Zinat is 0-12 over timber but should be involved. Blackyellowred didn't live up to market expectations on return at Kilbeggan, so it will be interesting to see if there's money again, while handicap debutante Midnight Geisha requires scrutiny given her trainer/jockey team.
