Forecast

Grace To Grace (3/1), Make Good (7/2), Harvey Specter (5/1), Shumaker (5/1), El Tren (5/1), Son Of Hypnos (13/2), Final Endeavour (17/2), Martha's Vineyard (12/1), Aasleagh Fawn (12/1), Muyam Spirit (14/1), Allora Yeats (16/1), Azakan (25/1), Quiet Desire (33/1), Fayetta (40/1), Bell Manannan (50/1), Curious Bride (66/1), Trump Card (80/1)

Verdict

Preference is for GRACE TO GRACE, who found improvement when narrowly denied at Roscommon last time and remains on a workable mark. El Tren and Son of Hypnos look the likeliest dangers.

  1. GRACE TO GRACE (IRE)
  2. EL TREN (IRE)
  3. SON OF HYPNOS (IRE)
