Forecast

Glorious Legend (13/8), Judgement Day (2/1), Smitty Bacall (9/2), Dinons (6/1), Glan Y Gors (12/1), All For Nothing (16/1), Can You Believe It (16/1), Zaofu (25/1), Brog Deas Nua (28/1), Star Of Oscar (33/1), Mister Runner Man (50/1), Clarior Ex Obscuro (50/1)

Verdict
Glorious Legend likely will have more to offer for the Closutton team before too long passes but he does require some improved form currently. Judgement Day should be on the premises again after a solid effort at Down Royal recently but SMITTY BACALL can trump the pair of them. He's gone close at Clonmel and Tramore recently and should benefit from having Barry Geraghty's presence on his back here.
  1. Smitty Bacall
  2. Judgement Day
  3. Glorious Legend
