Walking In Memphis (2/1), Bracka Lily (7/2), Milomynit (7/2), Iamastartoo (4/1), In A Pinch (6/1), Caerleon Kate (10/1), Ballydunblaze (12/1), Sassy Yet Classy (16/1), Our Rachael (16/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained BALLYDUNBLAZE can land the spoils here if the mare is none the worse for her spill at the Galway festival last month. The five-year-old won a Limerick maiden hurdle in good style prior to her run at Ballybrit and can secure another win in this contest for the yard. The exciting and progressive In A Pinch, the Noel Meade-trained, Iamastartoo, course runner-up in June, Milomynit and bottom weight, Bracka Lily can emerge as the biggest dangers.
  1. Ballydunblaze
  2. Iamastartoo
  3. Milomynit
