Verdict

OTTAWA FIRE was much improved when landing some hefty bets on his handicap debut starting out for Johnny Murtagh at Gowran, always in the firing line and coming clear. There is more to come and he can follow up. The unexposed El Padre similarly has more to offer and his experience of the hustle and bustle of big fields will stand him in good stead. Pretty Rebel is another to consider.

  1. OTTAWA FIRE (IRE)
  2. EL PADRE (USA)
  3. PRETTY REBEL (IRE)
