Padraic O Conaire (7/2), Lady Of The Sea (9/2), Euro So Brave (6/1), Balinaboola Steel (7/1), Oskar High (8/1), Mountain Ranger (10/1), Cusp Of Carabelli (12/1), For Pedro (14/1), Dunloe Lady (16/1), Peggyclare (16/1), Wildcatted (20/1), Una's Pleasure (25/1), Bakers Street (25/1), Little Gold (25/1), Polish Partisan (25/1), Jazz Ranger (33/1), Zinat (33/1), Glasson Lad (33/1), Makeyourcall (33/1)

Verdict
EURO SO BRAVE went close last month at Ballinrobe last month and won't mind this better surface. She's gone up a couple of pounds for that effort but looks competitive again here and just edges Padraic O Conaire out. The latter has been in consistent form with a pair of wins this summer and a runner-up effort at Listowel last time. Cusp Of Carabelli and Mountain Ranger are others worth noting.
  1. Euro So Brave
  2. Padraic O Conaire
  3. Cusp Of Carabelli
