Verdict

It may be left to My Brother, to set the fractions in the early stages of the race, with Two For Tea, Miles To Memphis and the still well-handicapped DALTON HIGHWAY in behind, close up ready to make their move. The selection was winning favourite last time out at Killarney's August festival and is still on a winnable mark.
  1. Dalton Highway
  2. Miles To Memphis
  3. Zanjabeel
