Park Paddocks (1/1), Monotype (2/1), Arvico Bleu (3/1), Play The Game (4/1), Great Khan (6/1), Jaime Sommers (11/1), Getoutwhenyoucan (16/1), Magna Cartor (22/1), Countess Cathleen (33/1)

Verdict

PARK PADDOCKS has cruised to victory on his last two starts and is worth a risk in this grade against rivals who need to up their game. The other Gigginstown runner Arvico Bleu won on his seasonal debut last year so needs to be considered, but Great Khan was a huge disappointment last time. Monotype may want a stiffer test and last year's runner-up, Jaime Sommers, has been below her best lately.
