Forecast

Dromod Lad (10/3), Amarantha (18/5), Blankiedoodie (5/1), Highway To Heaven (5/1), Autumn Mist (11/2), Stamp Of Authority (8/1), Pulsating (17/2), Groovy Jazz (14/1), Ahaziah (18/1), Plugged In (20/1), Navorrosse (25/1), King Con (25/1), Eye Of The Dragon (33/1), Slade Runner (40/1), Una Vis (50/1), Basrah Breeze (50/1), Wave Walker (100/1)

Verdict

BLANKIEDOODIE turned in his best effort of the season when third at Gowran a couple of weeks ago and is selected to build on that and resume winning ways. Joseph O'Brien's Amarantha made a good start in handicaps when third in a big field at the Curragh and rates an obvious danger. Stamp of Authority could also have a part to play if recapturing the form of her Fairyhouse second in June.
