Betting

Forecast

Ballymagroarty Boy (11/4), Buddha Scheme (9/2), Mcginty's Dream (5/1), Duhallow Tornado (11/2), Shanroe Street (8/1), Dontdelay (10/1), Crank Em Up (14/1), Nakadam (16/1), Cairnshill (28/1)

Verdict

BALLYMAGROARTY BOY shaped well behind a promising sort at Chepstow last time and seems likely to get this longer trip with a visor on for the first time, so he gets the nod. McGinty's Dream and Buddha Scheme are slightly more doubtful stayers but should be respected given the form they've returned in.

  1. BALLYMAGROARTY BOY (IRE)
  2. MCGINTY'S DREAM (IRE)
  3. BUDDHA SCHEME (IRE)
