Verdict

A chance is taken on Emma Lavelle's BUSTER THOMAS, who returned from 20 months off in excellent form last summer and could be ready to roll again after a break. Ballycross shaped with promise on his first 2 starts for his new yard and should be in the mix from this sort of mark. Gleno bounced back to form when finishing runner-up at Doncaster last time and completes the shortlist.

  1. BUSTER THOMAS (IRE)
  2. BALLYCROSS
  3. GLENO (IRE)
