Forecasts

Punakha (7/4), Jeroboam (2/1), Plezantlysurprised (9/2), Ambitious (6/1), Cheval Blanc (12/1), Alala (16/1), Carlton Banks (22/1), Stay Local (80/1), Zequinto (200/1), Hermione's Angel (200/1), Surviving Murmansk (250/1), Midnight Fame (250/1)

Verdict

This represents a golden opportunity for JEROBOAM to get his head in front. The War Front colt was worn down in the closing stages in a 7f Leopardstown handicap last time and this drop back in trip looks a good move. Punakha has hit the crossbar on 3 of her last 4 starts and she should give another good account, while likely improver Cheval Blanc also merits respect.

  1. JEROBOAM (USA)
  2. PUNAKHA (IRE)
  3. CHEVAL BLANC (IRE)
