Verdict

An ultra-competitive finale with the vote in favour of CATCH CUNNINGHAM. He showed improved form on the back of being gelded when runner-up on return at Thirsk last month, going through the race as though ahead of his mark. Partnered by Oisin McSweeney, he's expected to go close, with Crush And Run in first-time blinkers, Meredif and Korker heading up the dangers.

  1. CATCH CUNNINGHAM (IRE)
  2. CRUSH AND RUN (IRE)
  3. MEREDIF
