Verdict

A tough contest to solve, plenty can be given chances and they include CAPTAIN CULLEN, who scored over this trip last week at the Curragh. He's been raised 5lb for that win but retains the scope to do well based on his old form and should give this a good crack if in the same mood now. Poetic Choice choice wasn't far behind him on that occasion and, likewise, the mare has decent claims in this field. One of the main dangers looks to be former C&D winner Korbous, twice a runner-up recently and feasibly weighted to go one better now. Cloudy Miss and Magwadiri are also worthy contenders.
  1. Captain Cullen
  2. Korbous
  3. Poetic Choice
