Forecast

I Know I Can (11/4), Born To Rule (4/1), Tuned For Power (4/1), Fearless Girl (9/2), Chimeric (11/2), Apricot Rose (10/1), Moon Fever (18/1), Excuzio Joe (25/1), Gaelforce West (33/1), Silverback Jack (66/1), All Dressed Up (80/1), Ballyvil (100/1)

Verdict

FEARLESS GIRL has improved with each of her three runs so is taken to open her account after an eye-catching fifth at the Curragh recently. Dermot Weld's newcomer Apricot Rose is greatly respected, especially if the market speaks in her favour, while I Know I Can is another who is sure to make his presence felt.

  1. FEARLESS GIRL (IRE)
  2. APRICOT ROSE (IRE)
  3. I KNOW I CAN
