Forecasts

Miah Grace (3/1), The White Mouse (10/3), Eglantine Du Seuil (4/1), Indefatigable (4/1), Crossgalesfamegame (11/2), Molly Ollys Wishes (13/2), Aggy With It (7/1), The Bay Birch (10/1), Schiaparannie (25/1), Printing Dollars (33/1)

Verdict

AGGY WITH IT is an improved mare this term and further progress looks firmly on the cards now she goes handicapping with her having comfortably landed novices the last twice. As such, she's narrowly preferred to The White Mouse, with another bold showing expected from Miah Grace.

  1. AGGY WITH IT (IRE)
  2. THE WHITE MOUSE (IRE)
  3. MIAH GRACE
