Fourhometwo (6/4), Burgoo Alley (85/40), San Martino (4/1), Dame Dandy (5/1), Malaysian (6/1), The Last Knight (15/2), Louisville (15/2), Wonder Spirit (33/1), Caesiere (33/1), Get Noticed (80/1), Shake The Heart (100/1), Styledome (100/1), In The Attic (150/1), Speedy Pix (250/1)

Verdict
In a race where many may not get into iot and be beaten some way out, it looks a perfect opportunity for the Johnny Murtagh-trained FOURHOMETWO to get off the mark here. The colt ran with credit on debut at Gowran Park last month and wouldn't have to improve too much to take this contest ahead of the Jim Bolger-trained Dame Dandy who is better than last start at the Curragh suggests. Burgoo Alley for trainer Paddy Twomey and the Aidan O'Brien-trained San Martino in first-time cheekpieces look capable of giving a good account.
  1. Fourhometwo
  2. Dame Dandy
  3. San Martino
