Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

It may pay to forgive BROSNA EMPRESS a lesser run last time as she continues to look well treated on the form she showed when narrowly denied at Cork and she can strike in first-time cheekpieces. Barretstown is another who sports cheekpieces for the first time and he's also respected despite appearing to find this trip a little on the sharp side last time. Dreams Delivered is next best.

Betting Forecast

40/1 Rockin Jack (Ire), 6/1 Dreams Delivered (Ire), 11/2 Wood Ranger (Ire), 12/1 Slan Tamall (Ire), 15/2 Viv Vance (Ire), 4/1 Barretstown (Ire), 20/1 Fine Distraction (Ire), 33/1 King Wasp (Ire), 7/1 Brosna Empress (Ire), 17/2 Helvic Princess
