Betting

Forecast

Siskin (11/8), King Neptune (3/1), Harpocrates (3/1), Back To Brussels (8/1), Southern Hills (12/1)

Verdict
The Ger Lyons-trained SISKIN can confirm placings with Harpocrates of their debut clash at Naas earlier this month over this trip. The colt by US Group 1 winner, First Defence can continue his development holding off the possible attentions of King Neptune and Back To Brussels.
  1. Siskin
  2. Harpocrates
  3. King Neptune
