Forecasts

Fire Away (1/1), O'Hanrahan Bridge (9/2), On A Promise (5/1), Ruinous (11/2), Scottish Accent (13/2), Do Not Disturb (15/2), Raecius Felix (10/1), Vino's Choice (11/1), Sunny Express (12/1), Lucky Flight (16/1), Mannochmore (22/1), Court Tycoon (200/1)

Verdict

ON A PROMISE quickened up in pleasing fashion when scoring in a small-field C&D handicap on his debut for this stable and, given the winning margin arguably underplayed his superiority, it would be no surprise were he to defy a 5-lb rise. Scottish Accent ranks as the main danger having been runner-up the last twice, while Ruinous shouldn't be dismissed if turned out quickly.

  2. SCOTTISH ACCENT (IRE)
  3. RUINOUS (IRE)
