Betting

Forecast

Loudest Whisper (7/4), Aprils Joy (10/3), Conor Hogan (4/1), Getaway Queen (9/2), Martha's Vineyard (11/2), Misty Millie (6/1), Clonard Abbey (17/2), Drummer (10/1), Mithmaar (16/1), Ben Alexander (18/1), Muyam Spirit (20/1), Sky God (22/1), Carried (25/1), No Trouble (33/1), Grove Hill (33/1), Cherryville (33/1), Swiss Cottage (125/1)

Verdict

It could be worth chancing MARTHA'S VINEYARD, who showed a lot more when runner-up on handicap debut at Killarney despite a very slow start. Conor Hogan responded well to this headgear when a close third at Leopardstown and is high on the shortlist, while Aprils Joy has been in great form over various codes this summer and remains unexposed on the Flat.

  1. MARTHA'S VINEYARD (IRE)
  2. CONOR HOGAN (IRE)
  3. APRILS JOY (IRE)
