Verdict

THE GUNNER MURPHY's sole career success was gained in a bumper back in 2017, but he showed plenty of ability over hurdles and posted his best effort yet in this sphere when runner-up back from a 13-month absence at Down Royal recently. This stiffer test will be very much in his favour and he gets the nod ahead of Valdieu, the progressive Lord Lariat and Dorking Cock.

  1. THE GUNNER MURPHY (IRE)
  2. VALDIEU (FR)
  3. LORD LARIAT (IRE)
