Forecasts

Er Dancer (1/1), Handy Headon (6/4), Clounts Glory (15/2), Whisper In Court (10/1), Born Famous (66/1), Pegase Amour (80/1)

Verdict

This lacks depth and is likely to be fought out between ER DANCER and Handy Headon. The latter arrives on the back of a smooth success at Down Royal, but it's the first named who has the best form and takes marginal preference. Clounts Glory is also worthy of consideration.

  1. ER DANCER (FR)
  2. HANDY HEADON (IRE)
  3. CLOUNTS GLORY (IRE)
