Forecasts

Gregory's Gift (3/1), Duquesa Beach (16/5), Prime Chief (6/1), Dance Emperor (8/1), Clueless Hill (8/1), Sweet November (10/1), Mokhles (16/1), Guiding (22/1), Jess's Corner (22/1), Secret Wizard (33/1), Heliaebel (40/1), Cross Step (50/1), Dusty Winds (80/1)

Verdict

GREGORY'S GIFT remains a maiden following 18 attempts, but he has been threatening to come good in recent weeks and this could be the day when he delivers the goods. The 4-y-o was behind Duquesa Beach at Leopardstown last time, but he'll benefit from stronger handling here and the first-time cheekpieces may also help. Clueless Hill is second choice ahead of Duquesa Beach and Dance Emperor.

  1. GREGORY'S GIFT (IRE)
  2. CLUELESS HILL (IRE)
  3. DUQUESA BEACH (IRE)
