Forecasts

Snowfall (2/7), Willow (15/2), Nicest (10/1), Divinely (11/1), Party House (28/1), La Joconde (40/1), Mariesque (40/1), Ahandfulofsummers (80/1)

Verdict

It's impossible to oppose SNOWFALL given the manner of her success at Epsom and she can end a bit of a barren spell (relatively speaking) in this race for Aidan O'Brien. Ribblesdale third/fourth Nicest and Divinely can battle it out for minor honours with last month's Naas listed scorer Willow.

  1. SNOWFALL (JPN)
  2. NICEST (IRE)
  3. DIVINELY (IRE)
