Verdict

Lots with chances in a wide-open handicap. FIVE HELMETS is very much on the up for his new yard and taken to rattle off a hat-trick after his emphatic Navan victory last month. In-form Rock Chica seems sure to have a say with the unexposed Golf Marin, Tuesday's winner Cousin Harry, and top-weight Ena Baie also considered.

  1. FIVE HELMETS (IRE)
  2. ROCK CHICA (IRE)
  3. GOLF MARIN (FR)
