Verdict

One of the few races the home team has dominated and OUR POWER looks very interesting for the burgeoning Sam Thomas yard. He ran a very eye-catching race on his first go over 3m in a valuable Kempton handicap last month, finishing with a flourish having had plenty go wrong. He gets the vote over Corach Rambler, Tea Clipper and high-class Frodon. Floueur could be the pick of the Irish challengers.

  1. OUR POWER (IRE)
  2. CORACH RAMBLER (IRE)
  3. TEA CLIPPER (IRE)
