Rooster Byron (5/2), Chateauneuf Du Pap (4/1), Global Fert (4/1), Goaheadmakemyday (10/1), Jack The Wire (10/1), Deor (12/1), Lady In Lavender (12/1), Seskinane (14/1), Ask Susan (20/1), Courtncatcher (22/1), Inch Rise (33/1), Nikodam (33/1)

Verdict

This looks pretty open and it's hard to discount many. GLOBAL FERT has only had a handful on meaningful starts and despite being eight might have a bit more to come, and his latest effort at Fairyhouse indicated he's still going the right way. This looks an ideal test and he can score again. Rooster Byron is winning with plenty in hand and looks an obvious danger, with the lightly-weighted Lady In Lavender another likely improver.
  1. Global Fert
  2. Rooster Byron
  3. Lady In Lavender
