Forecast

Barrington Court (15/8), Mighty Blue (7/2), Yaxeni (11/2), Ennistymon (15/2), Elizabethofaragon (8/1), Snapraeceps (11/1), Shamiyna (12/1), Prose (18/1), Lugnaquilla (22/1), Sagrada Familia (28/1), Starlight Dream (28/1), Wilderness (28/1), Cerro Bayo (40/1), Tashi (66/1), Oh So True (66/1)

Verdict

MIGHTY BLUE finished behind Barrington Court in a Group 3 at the Curragh 3 weeks ago but that was over 2m and she's taken to come out on top this time over this shorter distance. Snapraeceps, Elizabethofaragon and Ennistymon also have the form to be in the shake-up.

  1. MIGHTY BLUE (FR)
  2. BARRINGTON COURT (IRE)
  3. SNAPRAECEPS (IRE)
