Forecast

Captain Mc (5/6), Mason City (5/6), Fancy Foundations (4/1), Raleagh Flora (11/2), Ballela Storm (17/2), Electricitywork (14/1), Yug (16/1), Scarlet Rebel (33/1)

Verdict

CAPTAIN MC offered plenty to work on in a Down Royal maiden hurdle in March, and looks sure to improve now stepping up in trip, so he's taken to strike at the second attempt under Rules. Recent bumper winner Mason City and Raleagh Flora are considered the main threats.

  1. CAPTAIN MC (IRE)
  2. MASON CITY (IRE)
  3. RALEAGH FLORA
