Verdict

CAPTAIN GUINNESS was in the process of running below form prior to unseating in Grade 1 company at Punchestown back in the spring. However, he'd previously made up in to a smart chaser and is well worth another chance to get back on the up. Andy Dufresne's only disappointment to date came at Fairyhouse in April and he's expected to pose the chief threat.

  1. CAPTAIN GUINNESS (IRE)
  2. ANDY DUFRESNE (IRE)
  3. DARVER STAR (IRE)
