Forecasts

Boundless Ocean (11/8), Juncture (3/1), Raadobarg (4/1), Voice Of Angels (15/2), Marbling (11/1), Charterhouse (14/1), Eskimo Komet (250/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for a few of these but RAADOBARG holds the edge on form and is taken to bag a third win of the season having not been seen to best effect at the Curragh last time. In-form course scorers Juncture and Boundless Ocean are feared most and taken to chase home Johnny Murtagh's 4-y-o in that order.

  1. RAADOBARG (IRE)
  2. JUNCTURE
  3. BOUNDLESS OCEAN (IRE)
