Forecast

Mount Ida (8/11), Drury (6/4), Strange Notions (10/1), Moyode Gold (20/1), Tick Along (100/1)

Verdict
There isn't a great deal to choose between DRURY and Mount Ida in what has the look of a match, and while the drop in trip is arguably in the latter's favour, Drury - a half-sister to Champ from the family of Best Mate - gets a marginal vote after an impressive display at Punchestown last time. Strange Notions is best of the rest.
  1. Drury
  2. Mount Ida
  3. Strange Notions
