Verdict

EMANCIPATOR justified heavy support on chase/stable debut at Clonmel 3 weeks ago and from the same mark back over hurdles, he looks ahead of the game. Iridescent is also going through a good spell and is second choice, with Stolen Moment another to consider.

  1. EMANCIPATOR (IRE)
  2. IRIDESCENT (IRE)
  3. STOLEN MOMENT (IRE)
