Fils Spirituel (3/1), Arthurian Fame (3/1), Fusain (10/3), Cedarwood Road (7/1), Jungle Junction (7/1), Still Standing (12/1), Powerful Ted (16/1), Filon D'Oudairies (25/1), Whatsnotoknow (33/1), Lost Oscar (33/1), The Wonky Tonk (50/1), Thousand Tears (66/1), Mary Of De Sorrows (66/1), Department Of War (66/1), Aera (66/1), Vocal Queen (100/1), Funky Dady (100/1), I'll Be That Lady (100/1), Power Drive (100/1), Formula One (100/1), Howsitgoinglohan (100/1), Crafty Hugo (100/1), Lord Lariat (100/1), Loudest Whisper (100/1), Dya Understand (100/1)

Verdict
ARTHURIAN FAME sets the standard on form., and is open to improvement, so looks the safest option, although Fusain showed marked improvement when second last time, and isn't taken lightly. That comment also applies to Fils Spirituel, who ought to improve markedly for a pleasing introduction at Punchestown.
  1. Arthurian Fame
  2. Fusain
  3. Fils Spirituel
