Forecast

Accladora (10/11), Clifftop (9/4), Treble Cone (7/2), Amarantha (9/2), Legal Thriller (5/1), Pulsating (9/1), No Way Jack (9/1), Silk Air (11/1), Highway To Heaven (12/1), Popsicle (18/1), Some Picture (20/1), Groovy Jazz (28/1), Loaded (28/1), Eye Of The Dragon (33/1), Knock Flyer (50/1), Crystal Pool (50/1), King Con (50/1), Feather Step (80/1), Super Sling (125/1), Star And Crescent (125/1), Ifyouhaveaminute (200/1)

Verdict

LEGAL THRILLER needs to be forgiven a couple of lesser efforts since her reappearance but there was an excuse last time and she might be worth chancing in first-time blinkers. Clifftop has been knocking on the door this season and rates a threat under Shane Foley, while Joseph O'Brien's Amarantha could also have a say if recapturing the level of her penultimate Curragh third.
