Allora Yeats (9/2), Swelltime (9/2), Cache Queen (11/2), Mithmaar (13/2), Oromo (17/2), Grove Hill (9/1), Reddiac (10/1), Mademoiselle Penny (12/1), The Abbey (14/1), For Your Eyes (16/1), Charle Brune (20/1), Final Endeavour (20/1), Beat Of The Sea (22/1), Tenth Amendment (25/1), Ballydrislane (25/1), Loingseoir (33/1), Indian Eye (33/1), Castle Chase (40/1), Shes Gold (40/1), Match My Fire (40/1), Pour Sioux (50/1)

Verdict
A tough handicap in which plenty can stake a claim, preference is for MITHMAAR to build on his recent promise. The maiden has gradually got the hang of things with each start and with the application of headgear for the first time, looks to have found a golden opportunity by his shrewd trainer. Allora Yeats was ahead of him on his latest start and only goes up 3lb for that so is likely to be the main danger once more, while the likes of top weight Cache Queen, Oromo and Charle Brune all arguably ran career bests last time but will need slightly more once again if to get their head in front in this.
