Verdict

FOLLOW THE CROWD is less exposed than most he meets here and arrives having run his best race yet when runner-up over shorter here 2 weeks ago. Unexposed at this sort of trip, he gets the narrow vote to build on that and come out on top. School Lane and Nuttorridge, who finished 2-1 respectively over C&D latest, can also figure, the former in receipt of a handy weight pull on this occasion.

  1. FOLLOW THE CROWD (IRE)
  2. SCHOOL LANE (IRE)
  3. NUTTORRIDGE (IRE)
