Forecast

Musalsal (4/1), Hidden Spark (9/2), Pimstrel (5/1), Coill Na Sionainne (6/1), Lady Arona (9/1), Ask Delaney (12/1), Travelwise (12/1), Loughanlea Lass (14/1), Voyageofdiscovery (16/1), Tennessee Wildcat (16/1), Stellaire Enfant (22/1), Tennesse Waltz (25/1), Woods (25/1), Celtic Force (25/1), No Way Jack (33/1), Lottieloveheart (33/1), Olly's Folly (33/1), Dragon Belle (50/1), Dingle Bay (50/1)

Verdict
Pimstrel sprung quite the shock at Gowran Park nine days ago when winning but must repeat the feat now from a higher mark and, likely, on much better ground. Musalsal was rewarded for some good efforts when getting up late to win at the Kilkenny venue on the same card but may find that form reversed here with runner-up LADY ARONA. That was an improved showing on her third start since joining Gavin Cromwell and with an excellent claiming rider on board now; this looks a good opportunity to go one better. Stellaire Enfant is capable off a break and worth a look, while Hidden Spark is in good tune too and has sound claims under Mikey Sheehy.
  1. Lady Arona
  2. Hidden Spark
  3. Stellaire Enfant
