Verdict

SHANTOU LUCKY went very sweetly for a long way at Fairyhouse last time so is taken to add to his earlier Down Royal success off a handy-looking mark. Handicap-debutant Explosive Boy rates a big threat if, as expected, building on his recent Naas fifth, with Sefton Warrior, Rebel Ivy and Paddy Wickla all on the shortlist too.

  1. SHANTOU LUCKY (IRE)
  2. EXPLOSIVE BOY (FR)
  3. SEFTON WARRIOR
