Forecasts

Dubai Quest (5/4), Getting Closer (2/1), Rocklander (10/3), Beau Sancy (18/1), Pass The Hat (40/1), Argot (40/1), Chapelier (50/1), Popelys Gull (80/1), Mercers Court (100/1)

Verdict

DUBAI QUEST has been off the track 11 months but he was a wide-margin winner of his last 3 points outings and makes plenty of appeal if tuned up for this first go under Rules. Getting Closer looks another solid contender, while Rocklander is also a big player if he retains ability.

  1. DUBAI QUEST (IRE)
  2. GETTING CLOSER (IRE)
  3. ROCKLANDER (IRE)
