Forecasts

Lord Royal (5/6), Longhouse Poet (3/1), Coko Beach (9/2), Sempo (13/2), Karl Der Grosse (10/1), Espanito Bello (12/1), Storm Flight (66/1), Moratorium (80/1), Derby (80/1), Abraham (150/1), Misty Hollow (200/1), Gold Creek (200/1)

Verdict

LORD ROYAL had looked set to make a winning start in this sphere until taking a heavy fall 2 out at Thurles on his return. He can gain compensation here if none the worse. Coko Beach, who split subsequent improvers on his chase debut before finding the Drinmore all too hot, is a danger, as is Sempo, who wasn't disgraced in a red-hot Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham when last seen.

  1. LORD ROYAL (FR)
  2. COKO BEACH (FR)
  3. SEMPO (IRE)
