Verdict

SNAP CHAP produced a promising first effort when a never-nearer fourth at Gowran last week and tops the shortlist on these terms. There are plenty of potential dangers, headed by My Minervina and newcomer Santa Barbara.

  1. SNAP CHAP (IRE)
  2. MY MINERVINA (IRE)
  3. SANTA BARBARA (IRE)
