Verdict

A tricky race with the tentative vote going to ASPEN FIOR, who took another step back in the right direction when sixth in a maiden hurdle at Cork 16 days ago and appeals as the type to do better now switching to handicaps. Robyndeglory and The Higher Road are a couple of potential threats.

  1. ASPEN FIOR (IRE)
  2. ROBYNDEGLORY (IRE)
  3. THE HIGHER ROAD (IRE)
