Verdict

COSMIC VEGA ran a cracker when second at Roscommon last month and may be capable of going one better if showing up in similar form. Mutasarref acquitted himself well in a big field over 1m here 5 weeks ago and is feared for the Ger Lyons/Colin Keane combination. Ice Cold In Alex is back to the same mark as when landing this last year and also makes the shortlist along with Joseph O'Brien's National Gallery.

  1. COSMIC VEGA (IRE)
  2. MUTASARREF
  3. ICE COLD IN ALEX (IRE)
