Forecast

Shantou Sisu (9/4), Our Roxane (7/2), Still Alive (5/1), Casamari Abbey (6/1), Knockraha Boss (8/1), Western Doyen (12/1), Sol Milan (16/1), Danegeld (20/1), Alfred Wegener (22/1), Fairymount Boy (25/1), Lucia's Bob (33/1), Ricky Langford (50/1), Last Return (50/1)

Verdict
The 10-year-old KNOCKRAHA BOSS can build on a third of 13 at Cork over 2m4f before rubber stamping that effort at Tramore earlier this month to land the spoils in this contest. The Son of Golan has conditions in his favour here and can continue in good form at the expense of Shantou Sisu who appears to be the biggest danger. Alfred Wegener can go well at a price and can compete for remaining prize money with Our Roxane and Western Doyen.
  1. Knockraha Boss
  2. Shantou Sisu
  3. Alfred Wegener
