Coolnacritta (5/4), Impressive Duke (18/5), Saga Aravis (13/2), Roisins Ciara (8/1), Paddy Wickla (17/2), Esthers Marvel (17/2), Central Court (12/1), Derridae (16/1), Corrigaleen (18/1), Le Figaro Faoudel (20/1), Captain Cal (25/1)

Verdict

COOLNACRITTA continued his excellent run of form when runner-up (having been well supported) on debut for this yard at Limerick 79 days ago and this looks a decidedly weak contest, so he's a confident selection to go one better. Market strength behind Impressive Duke could prove significant and Saga Aravis isn't without a chance from a sliding mark.

  2. IMPRESSIVE DUKE (IRE)
  3. SAGA ARAVIS (FR)
