Forecast

Royal Blend (15/8), Dame Dandy (9/4), Sheer Chance (9/2), Majestic Steps (6/1), Valour (7/1), Malaysian (7/1), Sioux Grit (22/1), Star Act (50/1), Kilakazam (100/1), Cornice (250/1)

Verdict

ROYAL BLEND's latest Leopardstown second sets the standard and she's taken to get off the mark at the fourth time of asking, perhaps at the main expense of stablemate Sheer Chance who promises to be suited by the step up to 7f after doing her best work late on her 5.7f Sligo debut. Johnny Murtagh's Majestic Steps is also respected.

  1. ROYAL BLEND
