Verdict

ROSMANA isn't on a bad mark based on the pick of her form in France so could be worth chancing starting out for Joseph O'Brien. John Joseph Murphy has his string in good heart so Celtic Crown and High Altitude head the dangers.

  1. ROSMANA (FR)
  2. CELTIC CROWN (IRE)
  3. HIGH ALTITUDE (IRE)
