Verdict

Claims can be made for many in this big-field handicap and it may pay to take a chance on Thurles novice winner FRONTAL ASSAULT. He improved for the fitting of cheekpieces that day and there may be more to come on that evidence at staying trips in first-time blinkers. Easy Navn winner Damalisque, Unexpected Depth, Pure Genius and Dandy Mag head up a long shortlist of dangers.

  1. FRONTAL ASSAULT (IRE)
  2. DAMALISQUE (FR)
  3. UNEXPECTED DEPTH (IRE)
