Verdict

Balbir Du Mathan likes to get on with things and will possibly lead early in the contest with Le Martalin, Pylonthepressure and A Plein Temps chasing close behind. The early speed on the heavy ground could well play to the advantage of the Willie Mullins-trained TURCAGUA who can improve on his second of 10 on chasing debut last month. Balbir Du Mathan, Le Martalin and stablemate Pylonthepressure can battle for the minors.
  1. Turcagua
