Forecast

Red Laser (11/4), Rockview Emperor (9/2), Blistering Dancer (5/1), Indigo Iris (6/1), Unravelled (8/1), Affectionate Lady (10/1), Singapore Secret (12/1), Befortyfour (25/1), Enigma Code (25/1), Ere Yesterday (25/1), Back To Focus (33/1), Hughies Bay (40/1)

Verdict

Red Laser has been thereabouts in his last two starts under Sean Corby, and goes on the short-list again. Rockview Emperor made late headway last time at Naas and his last win came off a 3lb higher mark, while there should be more to come from Affectionate Lady after only four career starts. Pat Martin trained last year's winner and will be expecting a big run from LIKE MAGIC. Already a course and distance winner, the eight-year-old has every chance on the form book if you ignore his latest effort on soft ground at the Curragh even though it's more than two years since he was last in the winner's enclosure. Moonbi Creek could be a threat if getting a run from his reserve spot.
