Verdict

Although a competitive looking contest on paper it may come down to two of the main protagonists in ROI DE DUBAI who can make the most of his current form and 4lb pull from Coolfighter to land the spoils here. With the Gordon Elliott-trained Ourmanmassini must come in to the reckoning along with the solid and consistent The Major General, potential improver, Arch Stanton and Fred The Foot, beaten favourite on seasonal debut at Cork recently.
  1. Roi De Dubai
  2. Coolfighter
