Forecasts

Verdict

Cases can be made for several in this ultra-competitive finale but preference is for RITA LEVI. John McConnell's charge is yet to really fire this year but she's taken to notch a second career victory from this basement mark. Mokhles is proving consistent so he gets the vote to chase the selection home, ahead of Dawn Tapper and Dream Wisely.

  1. RITA LEVI (IRE)
  2. MOKHLES (IRE)
  3. DAWN TAPPER (IRE)
