Forecast

Shanroe Al C (5/2), Misty Adage (9/2), Lady Writer (6/1), Blue Templar (7/1), Open To The World (10/1), Ballybrowney Jack (10/1), Robin De Roost (14/1), Sunchyme (16/1), Loch Luatha (20/1), Johnnys Girl (20/1), Tongie (20/1), Fleurys Fort (22/1), Killisk Ben Rose (33/1), He Rock's (33/1)

Verdict
In a race where most of his rivals have questions to answer SHANROE AL C looks to have solid credentials having run well in defeat on his last two starts. The step up in trip should help his cause. Open To The World appeared to run a better race last time but is none too consistent, but He Rock's didn't run at all badly at Leopardstown last time and could be a danger. Ballybrowney Jack, Blue Templar, Killisk Ben Rose, and Misty Adage are others in with a shout if things go their way.
  1. Shanroe Al C
  2. He Rock's
  3. Blue Templar
