Verdict

Gordon Elliott has a fine record here and his DUNBOYNE looks primed to make it a fourth win in the past five seasons. This low-mileage son of Yeats has enjoyed no luck in running on his last two starts in Leopardstown handicaps and arrives on a very workable mark. Winter Fog shaped really well on his debut for Emmet Mullins and is feared most, with Alaphilippe and Folcano high on the shortlist.

  1. DUNBOYNE (IRE)
  2. WINTER FOG (IRE)
  3. ALAPHILIPPE (IRE)
