Forecasts

Galeola (3/1), Halimi (7/2), Moktamel (7/2), Kangaroo Valley (4/1), Moonmeister (10/1), Cray (12/1), Hurricane Sky (18/1), Venezia (25/1), Monty's Miracle (25/1)

Verdict

A finale full of recent winners to round proceedings off. Halimi is attempting to win for the third time in a row after wins at the Curragh and Galway. He has only had the seven starts and is likely to make bold bid to extend his winning run. Galeola is also on the radar with her holding a similarl profile. She failed in her bid to make it three wins from six career stars last time but should reverse the form with her Curragh conqueror Moonmeister though, as she returns to where she has scored over C&D in the past. That said the selection is MOKTAMEL, who bumped into an in-form sort here last time and is open to plenty of progress on this first run beyond 1m5f.
  1. Moktamel
