Forecast

Instant Return (2/1), Bythesametoken (7/2), Muhaafiz (11/2), Ardamir (13/2), Harvest Bow (9/1), Thereisnodoubt (12/1), Shumaker (12/1), Resurrected Duke (20/1), So Enjoy (33/1), Secret Cargo (50/1)

Verdict
A change of fortune looks to be on the cards for ARDAMIR. The eight-year-old failed to hit the target in 24 starts for previous handler Laura Mongan before a pleasing effort at Naas over 2m last month on first start for Gordon Elliott. The gelding can hold off the attentions of his nearest rival Instant Return for trainer Jessica Harrington with the four-year-old coming here to attempt a hat-trick of victories. C&D winner Bythesametoken can compete with the Paul Traynor-trained Shumaker.
  1. Ardamir
  2. Instant Return
  3. Bythesametoken
