Verdict

The possible Willie Mullins second string Asthuria likes to get on with things from the front and can take the field along here in the early stages of the contest. The early speed is expected to set the race up for last time out Grade 2 winner Dinaria Des Obeaux and BENIE DES DIEUX to battle it out in the closing stages with preference marginally for the latter.
  1. Benie Des Dieux
  2. Dinaria Des Obeaux
  3. Asthuria
