Forecast

Et Dite (5/6), Domitian (7/4), Darrens Hope (11/4), Fort Worth Texas (3/1), Commander Lady (8/1), Aurora Sunrise (66/1), Miss Sophiea (66/1), Getaway Gold (66/1), Regina Dracones (100/1), Samsara Lady (100/1)

Verdict
The Gigginstown House Stud-owned DOMITIAN can win on her third start over hurdles following a couple of solid efforts in bumpers at Tipperary and Clonmel earlier in the year. The Gordon Elliott-trained mare can hold off the attentions of Et Dite for trainer Willie Mullins who is likely to improve from her early starts over hurdles. Darrens Hope and Fort Worth Texas look next best.
