Forecasts

Vadsa Queen (8/11), Rocco Ray (5/2), Finnthemagician (13/2), Locorotondo (16/1), Importateur (16/1), Western Comandor (28/1), Art Of Silence (33/1), Volantis (33/1), Miss Vivacious (50/1), The Pedlar (125/1), Big Job (125/1), Cullenwaine (150/1)

Verdict

VADSA QUEEN made an excellent start when second at Punchestown last month and a performance of similar merit should be enough for her to go one better at the likely expense of stablemate Rocco Ray, who is likely to improve. Finnthemagician is a notable newcomer for a top stable.

  1. VADSA QUEEN (IRE)
  2. ROCCO RAY (IRE)
  3. FINNTHEMAGICIAN (IRE)
