Verdict

IRISH MINISTER has only once encountered cut in the ground and he was successful on that occasion. His handicap has slid since and tackling a much longer trip today could suit with him doing his best effort late on several times over trips around 1m. A chance is taken on him. Calmannand Flindt among others have run well already at this festival and both have claims again here.
  1. Irish Minister
  2. Camlann
  3. Flindt
