Forecast

Amhran Na Bhfiann (8/15), Zawara (9/4), Yulong Magicreef (11/1), Ashtarak (20/1), King Arthurs Sword (20/1), Mente Hermosa (20/1), Gauntlet (25/1), Laurouni (33/1), Pin Your Hopes (50/1), Bocas Del Toro (50/1), Dumhach Thra (66/1), Donate (100/1), Time And Money (125/1), Calcite (125/1), Sure Cert (150/1), Man River (200/1), Complete Fiction (200/1), Bell Manannan (200/1), Red Leader (200/1)

Verdict
ZAWARA shaped with promise when runner-up when debuting over shorter here last month and she is taken to go one better by getting the better of her rivals in this competitive looking maiden. The selection can get the better of Derby third Amhran Na Bhfiann who recorded a career best that day but was beaten in a maiden on his penultimate start. Third place can go to Ashtarak, who was running well prior to slipping on his most recent start while Yulong Maglcreef has shown good form here in the past and is another to consider.
  1. Zawara
  2. Amhran Na Bhfiann
  3. Ashtarak
