Forecast

A Step Too Far (2/1), It's All A Joke (5/1), Pillar (6/1), Polly Douglas (13/2), Misterio (7/1), That's Mad (11/1), A Likely Story (14/1), Aurora Eclipse (18/1), Unconscious Mind (20/1), Miss Florentine (28/1), My Good Brother (28/1), Nice Child Two (33/1), Iseebreeze (33/1), Guiding Star (40/1), Hot Dakota (66/1), Aqueliga (66/1), Feelfreetojumpin (100/1)

Verdict

POLLY DOUGLAS finished third in a slightly better grade of handicap than this at the Curragh 12 days ago and she seems sure to give it a good go from 1 lb higher. A Step Too Far's revised mark asks for more but she's clearly in very good order, while the handicapper has given My Good Brother a major chance.

  1. POLLY DOUGLAS (IRE)
  2. A STEP TOO FAR (IRE)
  3. MY GOOD BROTHER (IRE)
