Mengli Khan (1/1), Real Steel (11/4), Le Richebourg (8/1), Sharjah (8/1), Whiskey Sour (9/1), Hardline (25/1), Makitorix (33/1)
Mengli Khan sets the standard on the back of his Royal Bond success at Fairyhouse this month. He was backed like a good thing that afternoon and obliged without any great fuss, ensuring his credentials are clear. REAL STEEL however made a very impressive debut at Thurles for the Mullins team and gets the nod form Paul Townend from a quartet of Closutton contenders in this. The trainer/jockey team claimed this 12 months and with potential for significant improvement, can do so again. Sharjah isn't overlooked in the Ricci colours having won two from two over timber and, as a winner on the Flat, would be suited should this get tactical.
