Verdict

RASHAAN just needs to replicate his hurdles form to stand a strong chance of pocketing this prize and the signs were encouraging as he scored off this rating on the AW at Dundalk 83 days ago. He looks the standout in the field. Tommy Welsh has also been in flying form on the AW and showed he is going to be capable on turf with a good run at Navan recently, upped in trip and dropped in the weights, he also holds fair claims. Gusty Rocky merits a place on the shortlist on his final Flat outing last year at Gowran Park while Coolfighter is attractively weighted for this change in code.
  1. Rashaan
