Forecast

Different Spot (7/2), Crimson Chief (9/2), Railway Muice (9/2), Weihnachts (5/1), Cluan Dara (13/2), Shannon Tide (15/2), Island Master (17/2), Lily Trotter (12/1), Gold Seal (14/1), Minella United (16/1), Highest Benefit (18/1), Celtic Dancer (18/1), Ice Cool (20/1), Capture The Drama (25/1)

Verdict

A winner from a 2 lb higher mark over C&D last summer, ISLAND MASTER wasn't seen to best effect when fifth at Tramore in August, left poorly placed but making late headway without being unduly punished. He gets the narrow vote to step up returned to this venue. Weihnachts remains open to improvement as a chaser and is respected if taking up this engagement, along with Cluan Dara and Railway Muice.
