Forecast

Full Moon Magic (9/4), Sweet Affection (11/2), Guido Reni (11/2), Final Endeavour (6/1), Harvey Specter (6/1), See The Eagle Fly (7/1), Tara Dylan (10/1), Thefaithfulindian (11/1), Wyett Earp (14/1), Tenth Amendment (16/1), Caronda (18/1), Spelga (25/1), Dancing Doll (25/1), Appian Way (25/1), Ventnor (33/1), Ar Eagla Na Heagla (40/1), Miss Louise (50/1), Eyeoweyou (66/1), Aldente (100/1), Absolute One Right (125/1), Glenbank King (150/1)

Verdict
Full Moon Magic put up a much-improved display on seasonal return here six days ago, with a number of these in behind and will be hard to stop if in the same mood under a 6lb penalty. She may well win but has her consistency to prove. Harvey Specter is the other last-time-out winner but he's not one to trust implicitly. Tara Dylan's Curragh second behind subsequent dual Galway winner Princess Zoe commands respect but SWEET AFFECTION just failed over 1m4f here last month in a first-time visor and should go well again with her 5lb claimer assisting. Each-way claims are given to Guido Reni and See The Eagle Fly.
  1. Sweet Affection
  2. Full Moon Magic
  3. See The Eagle Fly
