Betting

Forecast

The King Of Kells (6/4), Half Nutz (4/1), Captain Corcoran (5/1), Garsman (8/1), Cobb And Co (9/1), Lady Stark (12/1), Mogwli (14/1), Settle Me Down (25/1)

Verdict
KING OF KELLS got off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking when landing a 6f handicap on heavy ground at the Curragh last month off a 5lb lower mark. The Michael Mulvany-trained gelding can continue his improvement here at the expense of six-race maiden Cobb And Co who ran well to finish within 5L of Borelli at the Curragh late last month. The Johnny Murtagh-trained Captain Corcoran and Garsman for Michael O'Callaghan can battle for the minor honours.
  1. The King Of Kells
  2. Cobb And Co
  3. Captain Corcoran
