Forecast

Prosecution (4/1), Tony The Gent (4/1), Honor Oak (11/2), Knowing You (6/1), Koybig (13/2), Dinkum Diamond (10/1), Remarkable Lady (11/1), Perfect Soldier (12/1), Georgian Bay (12/1), King Christophe (16/1), Giorni Felice (20/1), Sketching (25/1), Cairdiuil (25/1), Red Avenger (25/1)

Verdict
TONY THE GENT has winning form over C&D in his locker and comes back here in good health. He ran a perfectly good race last time, despite settling for second, and looks a strong contender for this prize. The likeable Koybig will attract support and won last time at Killarney, he could go close and his form brings in Prosecution, who get a pull at the weights for that defeat at the Kerry track. Knowing You is also worth a glance for the Weld team.
  1. Tony The Gent
  2. Koybig
  3. Prosecution
