Forecasts

Eagle Ridge (3/1), Exit To Where (7/2), Some Detail (9/2), Event Of Sivola (6/1), Big Difference (15/2), Hills Of Connemara (15/2), Grand Morning (9/1), Definite Wisdom (10/1), Eureu Du Boulay (16/1), Racing Pulse (16/1)

Verdict

EVENT OF SIVOLA got no further than the first at Ayr 3 weeks ago but he was beaten only by a subsequent winner at Catterick prior to that and is worth another chance. Eagle Ridge is bidding for a C&D hat-trick so must be on the shortlist, while low-mileage 9-y-o Hills of Connemara caused a surprise at Newcastle but the form is backed up by the timefigure.
