Betting

Forecast

Westerner Point (5/2), Impatient Partner (7/2), Gran Geste (4/1), Agent Boru (11/2), La Feline (13/2), Moyode Gold (13/2), Father Ailbe (9/1), Bothar Dubh (12/1), Sassy Yet Classy (12/1), Le Hachette (16/1), Mon Lino (25/1)

Verdict

SASSY YET CLASSY signed off for last term with an impressive Navan win and with her yard among the winners she is taken to make a successful return. Agent Boru is on a lengthy losing run but arrives in good form so seems sure to make his presence felt, while course-winner Gran Geste could also have a big say off a handy mark on his seasonal reappearance.

  1. SASSY YET CLASSY (IRE)
  2. AGENT BORU (IRE)
  3. GRAN GESTE (FR)
