Forecasts

Falcon Eight (10/3), Arctic Warrior (7/2), Berkshire Royal (4/1), Churchstonewarrior (9/2), Ash Tree Meadow (5/1), Bronn (6/1), Red As Rust (66/1)

Verdict

ARCTIC WARRIOR holds the edge on form and gets a narrow vote over Falcon Eight, who rates a big threat if translating his smart Flat efforts into this sphere after his Thurles novice success. In-form duo Berkshire Royal and Churchstonewarrior need considering too in an intriguing Grade 2.

  1. ARCTIC WARRIOR (GER)
  2. FALCON EIGHT (IRE)
  3. BERKSHIRE ROYAL
