Mean Fomhair (7/4), Royal Canford (5/1), Zephron (11/2), Atlas (7/1), Swiss Army Officer (8/1), Vormir (8/1), Ducky Mallon (14/1), Talking Tough (16/1), Bobby K (25/1)

Verdict

SWISS ARMY OFFICER has been knocking on the door of late, not seen to best effect when fourth of 16 at Leopardstown 11 days ago, and remains of interest. Mean Fomhair and Vormir are others to consider.

  1. SWISS ARMY OFFICER (IRE)
  2. MEAN FOMHAIR (IRE)
  3. VORMIR (IRE)
