Verdict

The nine-year-old AVALANCHE is appearing to be coming back to form in a number of close calls since June and can finally get his head back in front for the first time since winning a Limerick handicap over 12-months ago off a 3lb lower mark. Last time out beaten favourite Global Pass, solid performer, Raphael and last time out victor, Vocal Music can battle for the minor honours.
  1. Avalanche
  2. Raphael
