Forecasts

Run For Oscar (6/5), Gevrey (5/2), Humm Baby (11/2), Play The Game (8/1), Dollar Value (14/1), Scheu Time (20/1), Espion Du Chenet (66/1)

Verdict

GEVREY looks the way to go here given he arrives on the back of a career-best third at Punchestown and is favoured by these weights too. Humm Baby rates the chief threat on the back of her good Ballinrobe second with Run For Oscar not ruled out either, especially if the fitting of cheekpieces ekes out some improvement.

  1. GEVREY (FR)
  2. HUMM BABY (IRE)
  3. RUN FOR OSCAR (IRE)
