Verdict

Lots are in with a shout here. SURPRISE PACKAGE arrives on an upward curve and from a yard among the winners so he gets the nod now going into handicaps back over his optimum trip. Bread And Butter is next on the list after his good Punchestown second, with in-form duo Aldo The Apache and Fest Deiz worth considering too.

  1. SUPRISE PACKAGE
  2. BREAD AND BUTTER (IRE)
  3. ALDO THE APACHE (IRE)
