High Sparrow (13/8), Diamond Turf (2/1), Big Nick (11/4), Simon's Castle (14/1), Ballymaster (20/1), Wilson Avenue (25/1), Doctor P's Getaway (33/1), Sherryorport (50/1)

Verdict

Intriguing bumper to close the card with real chances for Gordon Elliott debutante Diamond Turf and Sea The Stars gelding Big Nick who is half brother to the ill-fated Starchitect. Preference is for Joseph O'Brien's narrowly beaten point-to-point import HIGH SPARROW.
  1. High Sparrow
  2. Big Nick
  3. Diamond Turf
