Forecast

Call Me Dolly (4/1), Emerald Green (4/1), Loingseoir (5/1), Han Solo (5/1), Easca Peasca (15/2), Bare With Me (9/1), Grey Serge (9/1), Advanced Virgo (10/1), Liars Corner (14/1), Muyam Spirit (14/1), Pak Army (16/1), Happy Company (16/1), L'Empathie (16/1), Brilliant Question (33/1), Capablanca (50/1), Sayesse (50/1), Swiss Cottage (66/1), Nightly Wailing (80/1), Shadow Wind (80/1)

Verdict

ADVANCED VIRGO is potentially on a good mark back on the Flat given what he has achieved over hurdles for this yard so could be the answer. Easca Peasca and Call Me Dolly head the dangers.

  1. ADVANCED VIRGO (IRE)
  2. EASCA PEASCA (IRE)
  3. CALL ME DOLLY (IRE)
