Verdict

A good renewal with the Irish holding a strong hand with only the admirable Black Corton breaking into their quartet at the top of the market but he’s likely to come up short here. PRESENTING PERCY and Monalee are hard to split. Both have shown top class Festival form before with the former just preferred on the back of his second to Our Duke. Monalee showed up well over 2m5f last time and will appreciate this longer trip. Al Boum Photo and Dounikos give the Emerald Isle a very strong hand with both of that pair having also shown sound form over fences.
