Forecast

Flash De Touzaine (13/8), Windswept Girl (2/1), Le Crunch (6/1), Thatsentertainment (7/1), Freddie Darling (8/1), Fleury (10/1), Canastero (14/1), Full Spes (20/1), Alkademon (80/1)

Verdict
FLASH DE TOUZAINE showed plenty of ability on his sole start in Ireland and he can make a winning debut for trainer Paul Nicholls by taking the concluding bumper. The selection can see off his rivals here with the newcomer Thatsentertainment capable of getting the better of fellow unraced gelding Canastero in the battle for second spot.
