Knock On Steel (7/2), Broder (9/2), Youngnedofthehill (13/2), Chief Of Police (9/1), Whereyounow (9/1), Epsilon Indi (9/1), Important Message (11/1), Severus Alexander (12/1), Rare Conor (14/1), Westernerona (16/1), Recommendation (22/1), Mister Thriller (25/1), Kingdom Brunel (25/1), Moghram (28/1), Da Big Fella (28/1), Antimatter (33/1), Megara (33/1)

Verdict
A wide-open contest with any number of likable contenders can go the way of BRODER who ran his best race since his last win when third at Limerick latest suggesting another success now imminent. Youngnedofthehill may have needed his last run but generally is ultra-consistent. Also on the shortlist is versatile Chief Of Police who looks primed for a big run.
