Verdict

KAARANAH again shaped well in defeat at Lingfield last time, beaten by far less than the amount of ground he sacrificed by being forced to circumnavigate the leaders late on, and he remains of interest back from a break. The unexposed Indigo Desert must be respected for Willie Mullins even after a lesser effort here yesterday, while Kojin went close in a similar event at the Curragh on his return and is another to consider.

  1. KAARANAH (IRE)
  2. INDIGO DESERT
  3. KOJIN (IRE)
