Betting

Forecast

Urbanist (7/4), Our Boy Boru (5/1), Apache Jack (13/2), Swift (7/1), Colwinston (7/1), Westerners Son (9/1), Our Valentina (9/1), Seskinane (16/1), Illuminati (33/1)

Verdict
Swift is the most likely to take the field along as the flag drops here with Our Boy Boru and Apache Jack possibly the pair giving chase in behind. The form of URBANIST looks pretty solid here given his win at Punchestown last month and his second to subsequent winner Mick The Boyo at Naas. Our Valentina and Apache Jack can give the selection the most to think about.
  1. Urbanist
  2. Apache Jack
  3. Our Valentina
