Forecast

Galvin (8/11), Russian Diamond (11/8), Dime A Dozen (9/5), Polished Steel (9/2), Aforementioned (11/1), Scheu Time (20/1), My Manekineko (100/1), Onenightintown (300/1)

Verdict
The J J Hanlon-trained DIME A DOZEN can continue her good run of form in this contest. The six-year-old looked impressive at Tipperary earlier this month winning eased down over 2m1f. The step up in trip is sure to suit the mare as she gets the better of the likes of the Jessica Harrington-trained Polished Steel and Aforementioned for trainer Gordon Elliott and jockey, Davy Russell in the colours of Gigginstown House Stud.
