Verdict

Newcomer BARNCROFT might peak over further in time but he may well have enough ability to make a winning start in a race where the bar isn't set all that high. His stablemate Boothen Boy, who also makes his debut, could pose the main threat, while Ilmig has achieved the most over hurdles to this point.

  1. BARNCROFT (IRE)
  2. BOOTHEN BOY (IRE)
  3. ILMIG (IRE)
