Verdict

A few of these arrive with question marks against them so this looks a good opportunity for WAR HERO to get back to winning ways having finished runner-up in a Dundalk claimer last month. Both Adams Barbour and Windham Belle are weighted to have a say too if bringing their A-game to proceedings.

  1. WAR HERO (IRE)
  2. ADAMS BARBOUR (IRE)
  3. WINDHAM BELLE (IRE)
