Verdict

Bumper-winner PAPAL LODGE got his career back on track when second at Naas in December and there could be better still to come from him, so he stands out in an ordinary affair. Mahons Glory is feared most ahead of Presenting Lad. Rambranlt'jac would obviously enter calculations if getting a run.

  1. PAPAL LODGE (IRE)
  2. MAHONS GLORY (IRE)
  3. PRESENTING LAD (IRE)
