Forecast

Crockford (4/1), I Am Superman (9/2), These Days (7/1), Chocolate Music (7/1), Sky Seven (9/1), Breaking Story (12/1), Zuenoon (12/1), Ferretti (14/1), Invasion Day (14/1), Black Magic Woman (16/1), Major Reward (18/1), Karasi (20/1), Dadoozdart (20/1), Jupiter Road (33/1), Copia Verborum (33/1)

Verdict
Recent winners on the AW at Dundalk Sky Seven and Ferretti can give a good account of themselves here and should not be underestimated but preference is for the impressive Leopardstown scorer, I AM SUPERMAN for the in form Michael O'Callaghan yard. The Footstepsinthesand colt led a field of 18 a merry dance on seasonal debut and can build on that win here at the expense of the Dermot Weld-trained Zuenoon.
  1. I Am Superman
  2. Zuenoon
  3. Ferretti
