Verdict

An ultra-competitive series final with several in with chances. Henry de Bromhead's HEATHER ROCCO gets the vote to make it 3 wins from 4 starts having bolted up at Limerick last month. He's clearly versatile trip-wise and should have no problem with this step back up in trip. Liz Doyle's progressive Feelgood Island heads up the dangers, ahead of Stranger Danger and Calthor.

  1. HEATHER ROCCO (IRE)
  2. FEELGOOD ISLAND (FR)
  3. STRANGER DANGER (IRE)
