Forecasts

Ask Cory (9/4), Cushinstown Finest (9/2), Scully's Dream (11/2), Give Him Time (6/1), Da Baba Elephant (15/2), Double Windsor (11/1), Miracle In Medinah (14/1), Famous Day (16/1), Tick Along (20/1), Rubiana (20/1), Clonguile Way (20/1), Kos (22/1), Heist (25/1), Walkers Point (25/1), Canadian Steel (66/1)

Verdict

CUSHINSTOWN FINEST added another good effort to his tally when third at Wexford 3 weeks ago and with consistency counting for plenty at this level, he gets the vote. Ask Cory is capable of winning a race like this if keeping his customary errors down to a minimum, with Double Windsor also of interest.

  1. CUSHINSTOWN FINEST (IRE)
  2. ASK CORY (IRE)
  3. DOUBLE WINDSOR (IRE)
