Verdict

The trainer and jockey combination of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell can land the spoils with their Gold Well gelding GOLDEN NOMAD. The six-year-old finally showed signs of improvement at Naas last month and continue his progression at the expense of the Oliver McKieran-trained Aarons Day who appears to be a potential improver. The Gigginstown House Stud-owned Epson Du Houx for trainer Henry De Bromhead and the Jessica Harrington-trained The Gabby Cabby can compete for remaining prize money while Mattie's Mountain could go well at a price.
  1. Golden Nomad
  2. Aarons Day
  3. The Gabby Cabby
