Betting

Forecast

Acari (3/1), Spruce Meadows (7/2), Severus Alexander (9/2), Mallacoota (9/2), National Identity (5/1), Wild Shot (11/2), Passing Trade (6/1), Coolbawn Magic (10/1), Followme Followyou (14/1), Watchman (14/1), Pour Sioux (20/1), Latchet (25/1), Usain Boat (25/1), Will Be King (25/1), Mister Dancer (25/1), No Trouble (33/1), El Chico Mejor (33/1)

Verdict

The form of the contest landed by ACARI at the Curragh has seen the third Dare To Flare go on to win. The High Chaparral gelding can win again under a penalty with 7lb claimer Gavin Ryan in the saddle. The improving Mallacoota for the Jessica Harrington yard can emerge as the biggest danger in a wide open contest where Killarney second, Severus Alexander, the Jim Bolger progressive filly, National Identity and the solid and consistent, Passing Trade are not easily ruled out.
  1. Acari
  2. Mallacoota
  3. Passing Trade
