Verdict

Thomas O'malley was perhaps a bit unfortunate at Gowran Park on Sunday and can be given a chance here, though he has not delivered despite plenty market support before. Slaney Street looked good tackling this trip recently and should go well while Steelyeyed has similar credentials on the back a narrow defeat at Fairyhouse last time. Poitin took advantage of a good opportunity when winning at Leopardstown last time and may have more to give while smart hurdler Bayan returns from a long layoff for the Gordon Elliott yard, but is respected on his 2015 Cesarewitch form just the same. Zeftan showed up well at the Curragh this month off a break but so, too, did WHATSFORUWONTGOBYU over a shorter trip at Cork. He represents the Cork Derby winning trainer/jockey team and, on the evidence of that run, could give them another success here.
  1. Whatsforuwontgobyu
  2. Poitin
  3. Mademoiselle Penny
