Ballybough Native (11/10), Patricks Hill (7/2), Female Approach (11/2), Viceregent (6/1), Babylon Beach (10/1), Dorans Boy (14/1), Kilmurry Jj (25/1), Hand Over Fist (25/1), Benz (28/1), Le Nouveau (28/1), Sofias Castle (50/1), Keepthepresent (50/1), Tuff Days (66/1), The Hogan Stand (150/1), Kansas Joe (150/1), Try It On John (150/1), Tout Savoir (200/1), King Gresel (200/1), Ben Vrackie (200/1), Castle Darby (200/1), Sir Daniel (200/1), Kadys Dirha (250/1)

Verdict

Not a strong maiden on paper and BALLYBOUGH NATIVE boasts the strongest credentials after his fine run at Punchestown in May. This stiffer test will suit and he can take another step forward with victory. Female Approach, Babylon Beach and Patricks Hill should be in the mix too.

  1. BALLYBOUGH NATIVE (IRE)
  2. FEMALE APPROACH (IRE)
  3. BABYLON BEACH (IRE)
