Forecasts

Exit To The West (5/4), Klassy Kay (13/8), Alohamora (10/1), Owenacurra Lass (12/1), Lauderdale Lady (12/1), Amor Verdadero (16/1), Howaya Aoife (16/1), Ask Heather (16/1), Smiths Girl (20/1), Lily's Gem (33/1), Strong Roots (40/1), Duchess Ravenwaves (50/1), Hidden Dilemma (66/1)

Verdict

EXIT TO THE WEST had plenty up her sleeve when landing a novice at Cork 15 days ago and might well have been let in lightly from an opening mark of 104. With that in mind, she makes most appeal, while Klassy Kay appears to be her chief threat given how she's been improving since joining Willie Mullins. Lauderdale Lady is another to consider.

  1. EXIT TO THE WEST (IRE)
  2. KLASSY KAY (IRE)
  3. LAUDERDALE LADY (IRE)
