Forecast

Smithscorner (5/2), Buttons And Bows (5/1), Halsafari (11/2), Gotthenod (7/1), Knock On Steel (15/2), Room To Roam (9/1), Pour Sioux (10/1), Wild Desire (12/1), Elite Trooper Grey (18/1)

Verdict

SMITHSCORNER arrives in fine nick and can boast a C&D win too so is fancied to record win number three of the season here. Elite Trooper Grey is much less exposed so could be the one to give him most to do now handicapping, while Buttons And Bows is weighted to have a big say too if shrugging off some modest runs on the level.

  1. SMITHSCORNER (IRE)
  2. ELITE TROOPER GREY (IRE)
  3. BUTTONS AND BOWS (IRE)
