Verdict

An interesting handicap with a chance taken on PROBE. He signalled a return to form without being seen to best effect at Leopardstown in June, going wel when forced wide 1f out and ultimately left poorly placed. Eased further in the weights, he could well be up to building on that now. 3-y-o Janoobi is going the right way and feared, along with Big Baby Bull.

  1. PROBE
  2. JANOOBI (IRE)
  3. BIG BABY BULL (IRE)
