Betting

Forecast

Luis Van Zandt (13/8), Shannon Fields (3/1), Doyen Dancer (6/1), Captain Courageous (6/1), Ballyadam Destiny (7/1), Comporta (15/2), Westernerona (8/1), Yeah Babe (9/1), Kelter's Dawn (10/1), Greenandwhitearmy (12/1), Presenting Cody (12/1), Grey Girly (16/1), Lopito (16/1), Round The Buoy (25/1), Mick Mixy (25/1), Stadius (28/1), Sois Gentil (40/1), Sang Tiger (50/1)

Verdict

Shannon Fields put in an improved performance on handicap bow at Tipperary recently and likely has more to come in the McManus hoops, he's very much one to note but this might go the way of CAPTAIN COURAGEOUS. He has gone close from higher marks in the past and made a pleasing start for new trainer Gavin Cromwell at Tipperary (fourth) 19 days ago. First-time cheekpieces may eke out some more and he's got clear claims. Luis Van Zandt will be involved if seeing the trip out, while Westernerona is a possible improver now handicapping over timber.
  1. Captain Courageous
