Betting

Forecast

Snow Ocean (9/4), Heart Of Soul (9/2), Torochica (11/2), Hot Team (8/1), Chartered (11/1), Finoah (12/1), Aasheq (12/1), Gabrial The One (14/1), Elmejor (18/1), Clem A (25/1), Gabrials Boy (50/1), Regular Income (80/1)

Verdict

C&D winner SNOW OCEAN is on a roll so hard to ignore turned out quickly under a 5 lb penalty in his hat-trick bid. Heart of Soul also arrives in great form so this course winner is feared most with Gabrial The One another with winning form at this idiosyncratic track well worth considering too.

  1. SNOW OCEAN (IRE)
  2. HEART OF SOUL (IRE)
  3. GABRIAL THE ONE (IRE)
