Verdict

SHANTOU WARRIOR was left with too much to do at Punchestown when last seen in December and is appealing here off a workable mark. The 8-y-o went close on his reappearance last year, so the lack of a recent run shouldn't be an issue. Junior Bee is feared on the back of her battling success at Wexford and Dylan Oak also enters calculations on the back of his encouraging reappearance display. Tuckmill completes the shortlist.

  1. SHANTOU WARRIOR (IRE)
  2. JUNIOR BEE (IRE)
  3. DYLAN OAK (IRE)
