Verdict

GORMANSTON has been knocking pretty loudly on the door at this venue in recent weeks and with consistency a rare commodity at this sort of level, he rates the percentage call. Chateau Musar opened his account over C&D last month and is an obvious threat, while Alwisaam warrants a market check starting out for a new yard.

  1. GORMANSTON (IRE)
  2. CHATEAU MUSAR (IRE)
  3. ALWISAAM (IRE)
