Forecast

College Oak (9/2), Le Grand Fromage (5/1), Northern Poet (11/2), Xcitations (6/1), No No Maestro (13/2), Ask Henry (7/1), Electron Bleu (7/1), Calvinist (8/1), Sometimes Always (17/2), Pianissimo (12/1), Towards The Dawn (14/1)

Verdict

NO NO MAESTRO could easily have more to offer now moving into handicap company for new trainer Fergal O'Brien and he gets the nod, with confidence increased should the market speak in his favour. Northern Poet and Sometimes Always are others who appeal as likely improvers in handicaps and head the dangers along with Pam Sly's Xcitations.

  1. NO NO MAESTRO (IRE)
