It's Only A Number (9/4), Kristian Goingwel (7/2), An Marcach (9/2), Goulane Jessie (8/1), Flynsini (10/1), Wee Small Hours (14/1), Load Up Time (20/1), Pacte In The Park (20/1), Princely Conn (20/1), Cash Me Outside (33/1), Greenway Machine (33/1), Sweet As A Nut (40/1)

Verdict

KRISTIAN GOINGWEL arrives at the top of his game and arguably shaped best (made effort earlier than ideal) when second in a handicap chase at Limerick 19 days ago, so he's fancied to get back to winning ways at the likely expense of It's Only A Number, who has also been in good form of late. An Marcach, who was two places behind the selection when third on his latest outing, is also considered.

  1. KRISTIAN GOINGWEL (IRE)
  2. IT'S ONLY A NUMBER (IRE)
  3. AN MARCACH (IRE)
