Verdict

SHE'S IN THE GAME had more in hand than the narrow winning margin suggests at Cork last time so she may be capable of defying the handicapper again and completing a hat-trick. Ozymandis is a lightly-raced winner from a good stable so it's likely he'll have more to come. The thriving Dragon of Malta and Ken Condon's Moss Tucker are a few of many others with claims.

  1. SHE'S IN THE GAME (IRE)
  2. OZYMANDIS
  3. DRAGON OF MALTA (IRE)
