Forecasts

Nordic Passage (11/4), Dark Vader (4/1), Ardhoomey (6/1), Verhoyen (7/1), Ice Cold In Alex (15/2), Arcanears (8/1), Flash Gordon (10/1), Cityman (16/1), Miacomet (18/1), Never Back Down (18/1), Maid Of Spirit (25/1), Fridtjof Nansen (25/1), Mary Salome (25/1), Alfredo Arcano (33/1), Geological (40/1), Zig Zag Zyggy (80/1)

Verdict

Nordic Passage is a fairly obvious starting place having won with a good deal of authority at Naas on Monday. He's got a 6lb penalty to contend with now however in a deeper race. Ger Lyons hasn't exactly hit the ground running (1-16) this week but his horses are generally running well and former Group 2 winner ARDHOOMEY makes plenty appeal from a mark of 90 here given his penchant for going well fresh. Verhoyen is another that goes well off a break; while Cityman is amongst the possible improvers and joins the very consistent Ice Cold In Alex and Dark Vader on the shortlist.
  1. Ardhoomey
  2. Ice Cold In Alex
  3. Cityman
