In depth

Verdict

It's been 10 years since the last time the favourite was successful in this and An Saighdiur was returned at 20/1 when landing last year's renewal off a much lower mark. A strong contingent of UK raiders include PRODIGALITY and Ron Harris' sprinter could prove the value bet. He never figured in last Saturday's Wokingham but a repeat of his earlier narrow-margin defeats at Goodwood and York would see him bang there at the finish. Racy, Yeeoow and Dick Bos are other with claims but Gabriel's Lad could prove next best of the English challengers. Harry Trotter and Via Ballycroy are both stepped up in class after recent wins at Fairyhouse and this track respectively but Joe Eile and Bubbly Bellini make some appeal in this grade. Reply and Arctic have their sights lowered with a 10lb claimer helping the cause of the former while Royal Empress looks the best of the three-year-olds.
