Verdict

ONE COOL POET's latest C&D run in a better class of handicap than this one reads quite well so he may be the answer to this tricky contest. Last month's Naas scorer Fou Diligence rates an obvious danger, while Gavin Cromwell's Brides Hill appeals as a possible improver in handicaps and is also respected along with Lunastar.

  1. ONE COOL POET (IRE)
  2. FOU DILIGENCE (IRE)
  3. BRIDES HILL (IRE)
