Forecasts

Ruler Of Dubai (3/1), My Newbrook Rose (4/1), Willyouwalkwithme (9/2), Roses Queen (6/1), Mossy White (13/2), Back To Bataan (8/1), Working Capitol (17/2), General Gold (14/1), Lady Of The Sea (16/1), Second Symphony (18/1), Chosen Flower (25/1), Zagnzig (25/1), Daring Decree (25/1), Bintheredonethat (40/1), Mrs Pops (80/1)

Verdict

RULER OF DUBAI looks the way to go here given he arrives on the back of an excellent second at Downpatrick and should also benefit from stepping back in trip. In-form Roses Queen also bids to lose her maiden tag and is much respected along with Willyouwalkwithme who can race off the same mark as when a good fourth at Downpatrick last time.

  1. RULER OF DUBAI (IRE)
  2. ROSES QUEEN (IRE)
  3. WILLYOUWALKWITHME (IRE)
