Verdict

MINELLA TILL DAWN came good last time at Cork and despite a large rise in the weights, could be in the mood to follow up. A big galloping type, this extra trip should be no problem though his jumping is not the best. Rocky's Silver steps up in trip looking for his hat-trick over fences and should give another good account. Call The Taxie is a fascinating contender after his promising run last time.
  1. Minella Till Dawn
  2. Rocky's Silver
