Forecast

Poker D'Ainay (11/8), Monition (15/8), Everybreathyoutake (9/2), Orena Bay (10/1), Blue Markie (14/1), Black Market (14/1), Danjaman (33/1), Shantou City (33/1), Benefit Run (40/1), Ask Cory (50/1)

Verdict
The Willie Mullins-trained Poker D'ainay is sure to be popular given the form of the yard but the five-year-old may face stiff opposition from the Gordon Elliott-trained, MONITION in first-time blinkers. The yard have a strong record at this meeting in the last four years and the Gigginstown House Stud-owned gelding can see off the attentions of stablemate, Everybreathyoutake and Wexford fourth, Black Market on debut for trainer Patrick Griffin.
