Verdict

A cracking handicap featuring a host of in-form sorts. ENVOL PIERJI is less exposed than most he meets here and caught the eye from his lower chase mark when third at Fairyhouse (21f) 68 days ago, noted keeping on well and finishing with running left. The return to 3m is a plus on that evidence and he earns the vote. Alohamora, Theatre World and Kavanaghs Corner head up the dangers.

  1. ENVOL PIERJI (FR)
  2. ALOHAMORA (IRE)
  3. THEATRE WORLD (IRE)
