Forecast

Bopedro (5/1), Current Option (11/2), Shawaamekh (6/1), Jassaar (6/1), Ice Cold In Alex (15/2), Admirality (8/1), Silverkode (8/1), Viadera (10/1), Black Magic Woman (20/1), Innamorare (20/1), Ducky Mallon (25/1), Crotchet (25/1), Trading Point (25/1), Marshall Jennings (33/1), Morpho Blue (33/1), Mokhalad (33/1), Klute (33/1)

Verdict
VIADERA is better than what she showed last time out at the Curragh and a return to the form that saw her win two of her previous three starts should see her get competitive in what has to be considered a tricky finale. Current Option and Jassaar are both closely matched on form with the former narrowly preferred with the prospect of more progress to come.
