Sayo (2/1), Baron Samedi (4/1), Halimi (5/1), Persia (11/2), Bashiyr (13/2), Layfayette (7/1), War Diary (10/1), Buckman Tavern (11/1), Great Bear (12/1), Jake Peter (14/1), Legal Spin (16/1), Pearl Warrior (16/1), Melburnian (20/1), Tritonix (33/1), Guinevere (40/1), Western Boy (50/1), Baltic Song (50/1), Formula One (100/1)
The vote in this ultra-competitive handicap goes to SAYO, who looked unlucky when going close at the Curragh in June and confirmed his wellbeing with an easy win over hurdles last month. Persia shaped well on his belated reappearance in the Leopardstown handicap won by Halimi and is feared most ahead of fellow 3-y-os Baron Samedi and Layfayette. Pearl Warrior is also shortlisted.
