Forecast

Our Rockstar (11/4), My Mums Posh (10/3), Viking Ruby (7/2), Rose Of Aghaboe (9/2), Jonjoela (13/2), Emily Webb (11/1), Get An Oscar (14/1), Kentford Mallard (14/1), Queen Among Kings (25/1), Noble Glance (33/1), Tennewrow (40/1), Kapitall (66/1), Bridgets Cross (66/1)

Verdict

ROSE OF AGHABOE shaped as though this 25f trip would really suit when a strong-finishing second over 20f at Doncaster last time so is given the vote to make a winning return for her in-form yard. Viking Ruby has started the season in excellent form so is sure to pose a big threat, while the Alex Hales-trained duo of Emily Webb and last year's winner Jonjoela are much respected too.

  1. ROSE OF AGHABOE (IRE)
