Verdict

A difficult staying handicap to end proceedings which mizes some useful flat and jumps form, it may be worth taking a chance on the severely unexposed JON SNOW to make his Irish flat debut a winning one. He has taken time to come to hand for his handler over timber but has been given a workable mark for this and looks the trainer's top selection on jockey bookings. Lynwood Gold showed promise when hampered last time and represents a yard who can irk significant improvement out of these sorts, while Dalton Highway looks handicapped for one last significant effort and Sharjah could be dangerous if replicating his hurdles form that saw him finish runner-up in this year's Champion Hurdle.
  1. Jon Snow
  2. Lynwood Gold
  3. Dalton Highway
