Forecasts

King Of The Castle (4/9), Mcpherson (10/3), Shinpachi (4/1), Espania (13/2), Acqua Di Gioia (10/1), Cleopatra's Needle (14/1), Rock Chant (33/1), Le Boulevardier (66/1), Beautiful Chaos (125/1), Our Nancy (200/1), Izzys Charm (200/1), Ostaiocht (200/1), Punchy Fly (250/1)

Verdict

KING OF THE CASTLE posted a very useful effort when second off a mark of 91 in the Ulster Derby and will be very hard to beat if showing up here in similar form. It would be no surprise if the chief threat were to come from his debuting stablemate Espania, who cost a fortune and is a sister to connections' 2018 Oaks winner Forever Together. Mcpherson may prove best of the rest.

  1. KING OF THE CASTLE (IRE)
  2. ESPANIA (IRE)
  3. MCPHERSON
