Verdict
Ireland and two stables in particular (Mullins/Elliott) have given the Emerald Isle a good record in this and they go looking for their fourth win in a row. Nine Irish runners give them a good chance with Appreciate It looking to be their leading hope blending stamina (already won over 2m4f with speed) but the Elliott team provide a worthy opponent in the mare QUEENS BROOK an impressive winner on her only start so far. Mares could be to the fore with last year’s fifth The Glancing Queen forming part of a decent home defence. 4yo’s haven’t been successful since 2010 (Cue Card) but Ocean Wind and Panic Attack need to be noted.
  1. Queens Brook
  2. Appreciate It
  3. The Glancing Queen
