Forecast

Bay Hill (6/4), Toor General (11/4), Benny In Milan (10/3), Billy's Angel (12/1), Lucky Phil (16/1), Josephina (16/1), Daring Decree (25/1), Cap'n (33/1), Ask David (50/1), U S Navy Seal (50/1)

Verdict
Difficult to see TOOR GENERAL being unable to land a hat-trick of wins here following wins at Roscommon and Fairyhouse last month. The improving seven-year-old can see off the attentions of the solid and consistent, Bay Hill and the Denis Hogan-trained, Benny In Milan. Novice chase winner for previous connections, Cap'n is deserving of consideration on stable debut.
  1. Toor General
  2. Bay Hill
  3. Cap'n
