You Say Nothing (7/2), Pottlerath (4/1), Resurrected Duke (9/2), Spare Brakes (5/1), Hardwired (11/1), Fierami (12/1), Likable Chancer (14/1), Solar Heat (16/1), My Manekineko (16/1), Crimson Chief (20/1), Lucia's Bob (25/1), Gardenia Borget (33/1), Fox Fearless (50/1)

Verdict

This may go to SPARE BRAKES, who returned to his smooth-travelling best when third in a competitive handicap hurdle at Limerick 20 days ago. You Say Nothing has been hiked up 11 lb for his Down Royal success but remains unexposed, with handicap-debutant Hardwired another to consider.
