Verdict

AN MARCACH has improved his form since switched to chasing and, following an encouraging third in a handicap at Clonmel last month, he makes most appeal in a race where plenty have something to prove. I'm Not Alone at least arrives in form, so he's a potential threat, while Pegase Amour is also considered having edged down to an appealing mark.

  1. AN MARCACH (IRE)
  2. I'M NOT ALONE (IRE)
  3. PEGASE AMOUR (IRE)
