Verdict

It could be worth siding with MAC N CHEESE on his first run for 15 months. He did well upon joining Gavin Cromwell in 2019 and has won on the back of a long absence in the past. Moratorium could do better now handicapping in this sphere for top connections and is worth considering, with Memory Tree another to keep in mind.

  1. MAC N CHEESE (IRE)
  2. MORATORIUM (IRE)
  3. MEMORY TREE (IRE)
