Forecast

Shona Mea (3/1), Take My Hand (4/1), Scholastic (4/1), Ivy Avenue (7/1), Amelia Jane (15/2), Legal Thriller (8/1), Philly's Hope (10/1), Miss Cunning (14/1), Sin E Shekells (18/1), Ranger Bob (20/1), Cap D'antibes (20/1), Buachaill Or (20/1), Three Sevens (22/1), Fryerns (25/1), Laralei (33/1), Chica Boom Boom (40/1), Regal Eagle (50/1), Summit Rock (50/1), Swift Sonnet (50/1), Gracias Madre (66/1), Clever Currency (66/1)

Verdict
Very competitive stuff here and lots of in-form contenders. Scholastic and Take My Hand arrive from winning efforts and are considered while Shona Mea was successful penultimate start before finding only a subsequent winner too good at Limerick. Jessica Harrington's filly is not done improving and is high on the list. Frontrunner Buachaill Or perhaps found the ground against him last time and isn't dismissed but IVY AVENUE made a pleasing reappearance in an apprentice contest recently to be fourth. That Gowran form gives her a chance, especially with fitness boosted, quicker ground and stable jockey Kevin Manning taking over now.
