Verdict

KNOCKRAHA PYLON looks to have possibly had this race on the agenda following his third of in this race 12-months ago and two interesting outings this season. Rose Alice is a C&D winner for a yard that does well at this meeting and the ultra-consistent Gracemount can battle for the minor honours.
  1. Knockraha Pylon
