Forecasts

Mount Everest (6/4), Yonkers (5/1), Gee Rex (5/1), Cosmic Horizon (6/1), Sovereign (10/1), Musalsal (10/1), Blenheim Palace (16/1), Vocal Manager (16/1), Dingle Bay (16/1), Pearl Warrior (20/1), Crimson King (50/1), Bendzonic (50/1), Sevenaday (66/1), High Glory (66/1), Fassbender (66/1)

Verdict

While it was disappointing that MOUNT EVEREST was beaten latest at long odds-on at Cork he is given a chance to make amends with that second still form as strong as anything and he could yet have more to come based on his pedigree. Cosmic Horizon is the most feared rival with Joseph O'Brien's colt looking like he would relish an extra furlong when staying on strongly at Galway last time out. Gee Rex has to be considered given that he hasn't been completely disgraced in Group Races and if he handles the step up in trip he surely must go close.
  1. Mount Everest
  2. Cosmic Horizon
  3. Gee Rex
