Verdict

This represents a good opportunity for METAPHORICAL, who was perhaps unsuited by the drop back to 6f at Naas on his final start of last term. He showed enough when third over this C&D previously to suggets that a race of this nature would be within his grasp. Texas Moon and Flyin Hawaiian, third and fourth respectively here last month, are promising types and Eaglefield is a noteworthy newcomer.

  1. METAPHORICAL (IRE)
  2. TEXAS MOON (IRE)
  3. FLYIN HAWAIIAN
