Forecast

Dragon Of Malta (9/2), Earls (9/2), Take My Hand (9/2), Hisnameis Mrdevitt (5/1), Petticoat Rule (5/1), Sin E Shekells (8/1), Intervention (10/1), Golden Days (11/1), Ohio State (12/1), Puddle Of Luck (14/1), Kristall Eye (16/1), She's In The Game (16/1), Speckled Meadow (16/1), Royal Casamento (22/1), Chica Boom Boom (80/1), Ballinroe (80/1)

Verdict

EARLS was suited by the switch to front-running tactics when successful at Sligo last month and may be capable of following up off 5 lb higher. Take My Hand has only been raised 1lb for his recent Bellewstown success so there's every reason to think he can go well again. Golden Days has knocked on the door on her last 2 starts and is also on the shortlist along with Denis Hogan's Sin E Shekells.
