Forecasts

Felix Desjy (5/6), Whatsnotoknow (4/1), Montagne D'Argent (17/2), Zarkareva (10/1), Jack Hackett (11/1), I'm A Game Changer (14/1), Born By The Sea (28/1)

Verdict

FELIX DESJY has less on his plate than when trying to keep tabs on Energumene at Leopardstown so is taken to record win number three for the season. In-form Whatsnotoknow rates next best with Zarkareva not taken lightly either now back in calmer waters.

  1. FELIX DESJY (FR)
