Verdict

CRYSTAL DAWN has thrived this year and, on the back of an improved second to Eglish (who re-opposes) over C&D last month, he's fancied to reverse the form with the promising Sam Ewing back in the plate. Linus Larrabee travelled as if still ahead of his mark when eventually fourth last time, so he's also on the radar despite his quirks.

  1. CRYSTAL DAWN (IRE)
  2. EGLISH
  3. LINUS LARRABEE (IRE)
