Forecast

Adapt To Dan (11/8), Giorni Felice (10/3), Everyhouronthehour (6/1), Guanabara Bay (8/1), Pimstrel (8/1), Crafty Hugo (9/1), Accladora (10/1), Alice Milligan (12/1), Buachaill Or (16/1), Dont Quit (16/1), Scarlet Seymour (22/1), Stocai Ban (25/1), Straffan (28/1), Village Rock (33/1), Turf Range (50/1), Rudi's Princess (66/1), Must Be Dreaming (125/1)

Verdict

An open handicap but GUANABARA BAY looks the way to go as he can boast a C&D win and didn't enjoy the rub of the green when an encouraging sixth at Cork last time. Adapt To Dan is still without a win but arrives in good form so is feared most, while Alice Milligan is another with the potential to have a say.

  1. GUANABARA BAY (IRE)
  2. ADAPT TO DAN (IRE)
  3. ALICE MILLIGAN (IRE)
