Balko Des Flos (11/8), Shaneshill (15/8), Ballycasey (11/2), A Toi Phil (6/1), Kylecrue (40/1)

Verdict

Balko Des Flos was a good winner of the Galway Plate last month and has plenty scope for better in this sphere. He is likely to go very close again in this but might find SHANESHILL is a tougher nut to crack on these terms. The selection made a jumping mistake at precisely the wrong time in that Ballybrit contest and can avenge his defeat if brushing up slightly in that department. Last year's winner Ballycasey and the consistent A Toi Phil aren't readily ruled out in what looks a fascinating renewal.
