Forecasts

Meticulous (13/8), Barbary Master (15/8), General Counsel (10/3), Sovereign Gold (5/1), Don't Matter Now (14/1), Grange Island (16/1), Worth Presenting (16/1), Quaker Island (20/1), War Eagle (28/1), Attoe (33/1), Bite That (33/1), Imminent Arrival (50/1), Imperial Imp (50/1), Twelve Olympians (50/1), The Boys In Blue (125/1), Mahler Appeal (150/1), California King (200/1), The Claddagh Man (200/1)

Verdict

METICULOUS rates the pick on form and is worth forgiving his last run at Fairyhouse when he was reportedly struck into. He gets the nod then at the chief expense of Sovereign Gold who isn't taken lightly back in this sphere having shown fairly useful form over fences. Grange Island rates the pick of the remainder and a solid place option.

  1. METICULOUS (IRE)
  2. SOVEREIGN GOLD (IRE)
  3. GRANGE ISLAND (IRE)
