Verdict

An open contest is muddied even further by the possibility of a messy race, with not one of these a confirmed front runner. A chance is taken on EMIGRATED, who raced close to the pace when a good second at Downpatrick and a repeat of that would see him go close. The booking of Richard Johnson looks a significant one too, and the hint should be taken. The other Irish raider Global Fert deserves some respect as well and they could fight out the finish. Bay Fortuna may be the best of the home team.
  1. Emigrated
