Dazzling Darren (9/4), Amlad (9/2), Knock On Steel (6/1), Saeer (13/2), Back To Bataan (9/1), Massons Castle (12/1), Building Bridges (12/1), So Near So Farhh (14/1), Decimal Day (14/1), Jazz Ranger (22/1), Odd Venture (33/1), Ocean Legacy (100/1)

Verdict

DAZZLING DARREN arrives at the top of his game and is fancied to complete his hat-trick after an emphatic Down Royal success three weeks ago. Amlad is feared most on the back of his recent Wexford win, with Decimal Day worth a second look in his bid for a maiden victory.

  1. DAZZLING DARREN (IRE)
  2. AMLAD (IRE)
