Forecast

Kudbegood (4/1), Matilda With Me (9/2), Gregory's Gift (6/1), Fall For A Kiss (6/1), Cliffs Of Freedom (7/1), Giorni Felice (15/2), Tyrion's Dream (10/1), Max's Dandy (11/1), Musalsal (11/1), Strategic Fortune (12/1), Sahreej (18/1), Shatharaat (28/1), Just Brilliant (40/1), Kefallonia (40/1), Nakakande (40/1), Night Law (40/1), Adams Barbour (66/1), Rudisha (66/1), Du Maurier (80/1)

Verdict

This lacks depth and could go the way of Matilda With Me, who is relatively unexposed and has been shaping up well since switched to handicaps. Kudbegood, who's been runner-up the last twice, could pose the main threat ahead of Gregory's Gift.

  1. MATILDA WITH ME (IRE)
  2. KUDBEGOOD (IRE)
  3. GREGORY'S GIFT (IRE)
