Forecasts

Marshalled (4/1), Bold Emperor (6/1), Notice To Close (6/1), Golden Jewel (6/1), Filon D'Oudairies (13/2), Rebel Waltz (13/2), Cushinstown Finest (9/1), Goodbye Someday (9/1), Bolbec (11/1), Exit To The West (14/1), She Tops The Lot (18/1), Ask Nile (20/1), Best Behavior (33/1)

Verdict

BOLD EMPEROR would probably have won at Galway 3 weeks ago had he stood up and compensation may well be forthcoming from the same mark. Exit To The West is open to progress but would be better off going right-handed, so Marshalled is feared most.

  1. BOLD EMPEROR (IRE)
  2. MARSHALLED (IRE)
  3. EXIT TO THE WEST (IRE)
