Verdict

A typically competitive renewal, with a chance taken on GALICE MACALO who shaped well on her Chepstow reappearance and has a strong-travelling style which should be well suited to the demands of this race. Unexposed pair West Cork, who returns from a lay-off, and No Ordinary Joe are very interesting contenders for top yards. Alan King has a good record in this so Tritonic is also on the shortlist.

  1. GALICE MACALO (FR)
  2. WEST CORK
  3. NO ORDINARY JOE (IRE)
