Verdict

Cornelius Sulla and STOOSHIE both had to settle for second place at Limerick on their most recent respective starts. The former doesn't lack for experience in this sphere and showed improved form in that run, though he's had five attempts at this now. Stooshie came on nicely for his debut and wouldn't have needed many more strides to be in front last time. With his excellent jockey booking in place once more, he had fair claims of going one better now. There are plenty newcomers to keep an eye on and the market is an essential guide to assessing their merits but Pottsie and British raider Musical Slave are two of the more likely sorts.
  1. Stooshie
  2. Musical Slave
  3. Cornelius Sulla
