Forecast

Scherzando (13/8), Agent Zero (4/1), Adapt To Dan (11/2), Angel Palanas (13/2), Enter The Red (17/2), Sunset Nova (10/1), It's All A Joke (11/1), Born Invincible (18/1), Cactus Tree (18/1), Valquinto (18/1), Coill Na Sionainne (20/1), Lizbuncon (22/1), Rattling Jewel (22/1), Tooclosetocall (25/1), Seanjohnsilver (25/1), Max's Dandy (80/1), Procurator (80/1)

Verdict

ADAPT TO DAN has been threatening to shed his maiden tag this season and may belatedly get off the mark here. It's All A Joke is respected as a recent winner, while Valquinto has been competitive on all 4 handicap starts and could have a say. The selection's stablemate Agent Zero would also enter the reckoning if getting a run.

  1. ADAPT TO DAN (IRE)
