Forecast

Justina (15/8), Royal County Down (2/1), Mythologic (9/2), Formyboys (10/1), Yesterdayoncemore (12/1), Kocasandra (14/1), Bellsinthewood (16/1), In From The Cold (25/1), St George's Head (25/1)

Verdict

ROYAL COUNTY DOWN can edge out the Holy Roman Emperor filly, Justina in a battle of in form trainers here. The Gleneagles colt got off the mark at the third time of asking when landing a Down Royal maiden over 7f last month and can see off the attentions of the Killarney second as well as those of stablemate Mythologic who is better than his last run suggests. Kocasandra for the Johnny Murtagh yard will be doing all his best work at the end of proceedings.
  1. Royal County Down
  2. Justina
  3. Kocasandra
