Forecasts

Verdict

Some nice types line up for this with Raya Time, Brace Yourself and Defi Bleu boasting strong bumper form and At The Acorn an expensive recruit from the point-to-point ranks. The Holy One sets a high standard on form judged by his Punchestown third, but BATTS ROCK will be suited by the quick conditions and Gordon Eliiott's triple Flat winner may have too much speed for all of them. Pike County will also find the ground to his liking and poses the biggest threat.
