Betting

Forecast

Chagall (5/2), St George's Head (11/4), Emphatic (6/1), Tynamite (7/1), Is That Love (10/1), Fascinating Spirit (12/1), Petticoat Rule (14/1), Cappella Liath (14/1), Red Heel (22/1), Indiana Grey (25/1), Ossco (33/1), Ustinov (33/1), Stay In (200/1)

Verdict

Declan McDonogh rides this track very well and the aggressive tactics he employed aboard ST GEORGE'S HEAD over C&D last week paid dividends, with the 3-y-o opening his account at the sixteenth attempt. Stall 13 isn't ideal, but he remains feasibly treated off this 9 lb higher mark and another bold bid could be on the way. The consistent Chagall, Fascinating Spirit and Tynamite are live dangers.

  1. ST GEORGE'S HEAD (IRE)

  3. FASCINATING SPIRIT (IRE)
