Verdict
ROYAL ADMIRAL has been knocking at the door since switching to handicaps and there is a very real chance it opens in this moderate contest. Stormy Air won last time out something many of these have never done and that form alone gives him every chance. Tuamhain's third last time out was step in the right direction and he too merits respect.
  1. Royal Admiral
  2. Stormy Air
  3. Tuamhain
