Verdict

Few make compelling claims so it might be worth siding with REVERSE POLARITY to make a successful return from a break as she was in very good form when last seen in the autumn. Stuart Crawford's Cool Rain is nicely handicapped if recapturing her best form. Ever So Cool is also on the shortlist for the Gordon Elliott team.

  1. REVERSE POLARITY (IRE)
  2. COOL RAIN (IRE)
  3. EVER SO COOL (IRE)
