Forecasts

Shattered Love (13/8), Invitation Only (5/1), The Storyteller (5/1), Al Boum Photo (11/2), Up For Review (8/1), Saturnas (14/1), Tombstone (25/1), Montalbano (33/1), Tycoon Prince (50/1)

Verdict

SHATTERED LOVE can register her third consecutive Grade 1 victory by taking this prestigious contest. The selection has the ground and trip to suit today and she can get the better of Invitation Only who had some useful novice form prior to his pulled up effort last time out. Al Boum Photo drops back in trip having fallen last time out but a repeat of his previous second at Leopardstown can see him claim third,.
