Verdict

Trainer Willie Mullins has won the last five renewals of this contest and his SHARJAH, unlucky not to win over C&D in December can inflict a first defeat on the six-year-old Samcro who drops in trip today having won over 2m4f last time out. The selection has the ground and trip to suit in this contest while Early Doors, already placed at this level can finish third.
  1. Sharjah
  2. Samcro
  3. Early Doors
