Verdict

JUNGLE COVE is a consistent sort who shaped well when third at Cork a couple of months ago, so he could take the beating in a race where few look well treated. Giustino is a player if he can get back on the up, while Kosman can't be ruled out despite going up plenty for making all at Naas 15 days ago.

  1. JUNGLE COVE (IRE)
  2. GIUSTINO
  3. KOSMAN (IRE)
