Forecast

Loudest Whisper (9/4), China Princess (9/2), Clody Valley (9/2), Forgetthesurprise (17/2), Jiving Jerry (9/1), Xinbama (10/1), Walkers Point (14/1), Da Baba Elephant (16/1), Cousin Harry (20/1), Ceide Fields (20/1), Round The Buoy (20/1), Go Fox (25/1), Upgraded (28/1), Infuse (33/1), Dani's Boy (40/1), Lady Of The Sea (50/1)

Verdict

The five-year-old COUSIN HARRY can get off the mark at the eighth time of asking for connections. The gelding had been running well in defeat in a number of starts since the turn of the year, generally accepted that his efforts were better than final results suggested. The Liz Doyle-trained Clody Valley could emerge as the biggest danger following a solid effort at Clonmel when last seen in March. China Princess for trainer Peter Fahey should be considered on handicap debut while Infuse for trainer Colm Murphy and the Niall Madden-trained Forgetthesurprise could be worth a check in the market as post time approaches.
  1. Cousin Harry
