Forecast

Ecoeye (2/1), Foreign Legion (9/2), Emphatic (6/1), Havana Breeze (7/1), Bardo Contiguo (15/2), Starting Monday (8/1), Plum Perfect (8/1), Take My Hand (11/1), Tanseeq (12/1), Dance Emperor (12/1), Kefallonia (14/1), Shifted Strategy (20/1), Youceeyouceecee (20/1), Spiorad Saoirse (25/1), Breaking News (33/1), Curly Girl (33/1), Slade Express (50/1), Movie King (66/1), Twist (100/1)

Verdict

FOREIGN LEGION ran well in second when backed here on Tuesday and has a big shout if turned out again quickly with Shane Foley taking over in the saddle. Ecoeye is respected as a ready last-time-out winner, while Plum Perfect has been given a bit of a chance by the handicapper and won't be far away if recapturing the form she showed when second at Gowran in July.
