Verdict

EDENE D'ARC gets the nod of the two Gordon Elliott-trained runners and can get off the mark here in a contest that won't take a great deal of winning. Lady Ischia and the Jessica Harrington-trained Rapid Response can battle for the minor honours. Take A Punt from a yard that have had four winners at this meeting in the last three years and overall boast a 19% win and place strike rate, can go well at a price.
  1. Edene D'Arc
  2. Lady Ischia
  3. Rapid Response
