Verdict

JOHNGUS ran easily his best race when beaten only a head at Gowran last month and a reproduction of that effort may well be good enough to see him go one better here. Breakeven and Stranger Danger are considered the main threats.

  1. JOHNGUS (IRE)
  2. BREAKEVEN (IRE)
  3. STRANGER DANGER (IRE)
