Forecast

Nam (4/1), Prove The Point (4/1), Kashid (9/2), Roman Gal (8/1), Leavethekeysinher (10/1), Kodiac's Back (10/1), Solomons Seal (12/1), Harvey Specter (14/1), Dolly Levi (16/1), Jessamine (16/1), Paddytheirishman (20/1), Little Luna (25/1), Getaway Queen (25/1), New York Lady (25/1), Fast On (33/1), Fianchetto (33/1), Lady Ranger (40/1)

Verdict

PROVE THE POINT appears well ahead of most of the field when it comes to ability and can land the spoils here improving on his run at Navan on Saturday seeing off the attentions of Jessica Harrington's Kashid, potential improver, Nam and Mick Halfords Roman Gal, who is better than her finishing positions suggest.
  1. Prove The Point
  2. Kashid
  3. Roman Gal
