Betting

Forecast

Reikers Island (7/2), Orchardstown Cross (5/1), King Of Realms (11/2), Good Man Pat (7/1), Cloth Cap (8/1), Dragon D'Estruval (8/1), Coningsby (12/1), Diplomate Sivola (16/1), Impulsive Star (16/1), Top Wood (20/1), Compadre (25/1), Minella Rocco (25/1), What A Moment (33/1), Militarian (50/1)

Verdict
A typically competitive renewal of this race but CLOTH CAP finds himself on a nice handicap mark and while his future may be over longer trips than this, he might be well-handicapped enough to take this on his way to National bids later in the season. Top Wood goes well fresh and is a reliable sort who may be able to hit the frame while Phillip Hobbs has two interesting runners and Reikers Island is probably the pick of his pair.
  1. Cloth Cap
  2. Reikers Island
  3. Top Wood
