Forecast

Sharjah (5/2), Dalton Highway (11/2), Princess Zoe (7/1), De Name Escapes Me (9/1), Great White Shark (10/1), A Wave Of The Sea (10/1), Run For Mary (11/1), Foveros (11/1), Takarengo (12/1), Grandmaster Flash (20/1), Great Bear (20/1), Mister Blue Sky (25/1), Dalileo (28/1), Tiger Tap Tap (33/1), Mutadaffeq (40/1), Zenon (50/1), The Mouse Doctor (50/1), Golden Spear (66/1), King's Vow (66/1), Insignia Of Rank (66/1), Machine Learner (80/1), Aircraft Carrier (125/1), Time To Study (125/1)

Verdict
Having given the likes of Dalton Highway (won this last year) and De Name Escapes Me too much rope last time at the Curragh, the classy hurdler SHARJAH finished to good effect in fourth. Patrick Mullins takes over here and his mount can reverse that form. His father has a strong team; with Great White Shark and Tiger Tap Tap much-respected in a very open contest where Princess Zoe, Dalileo and Run For Mary all merit some consideration.
  1. Sharjah
  2. Great White Shark
