Verdict

DUBLIN JOURNAL hasn't been seen since finishing runner-up at Gowran in June, yet that form has been well and truly boosted since with the winner that day having landed the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood subsequently and he could be the answer operating from a 1 lb lower mark now. Pachmena, dropping in trip, Jo March and Right Turn are others fancied to be in the mix.

  1. DUBLIN JOURNAL (IRE)
  2. PACHMENA (IRE)
  3. JO MARCH (IRE)
