Betting

Forecast

Cantlow (8/11), Mtada Supreme (11/2), First Lieutenant (6/1), Love Rory (6/1), Treo Eile (10/1), Buddy Bolero (20/1), Ruben Cotter (25/1), Fergiethelegend (50/1)

Verdict
With Mtada Supreme having stamina to prove, and First Lieutenant turned out quickly after trailing home in the Irish National, this should be straightforward for CANTLOW, who stands out on form in any case. Love Rory blotted his copybook last time, but is likely to bounce back and can hit the frame.
  1. Cantlow
  2. Love Rory
