Betting

Forecast

Getareason (7/4), Rio Vivas (5/2), Dunvegan (4/1), Sometime Soon (8/1), Castlebawn West (8/1), Voix Des Tiep (9/1), Derby (14/1), Squadron Commander (25/1), Duc D'Allier (25/1), Gallant John Joe (33/1), Mountain Ranger (66/1)

Verdict

Willie Mullins has a strong hand in this, with Getareason and RIO VIVAS both likely to figure among those at the front of the market and preference is for the latter who impressed with his attitude at Navan. Getareason is likely to improve as well but may find his stablemate just that bit more knowing at this stage. Dunvegan may be best of the rest, although Castlebawn West gives Willie a chance of sweeping the board here.
