Verdict

COVIGLIA has been knocking on the door on turf this summer and might be up to resuming winning ways here. Manhattan Dandy is a long-standing maiden but has been thereabouts in recent starts and can make his presence felt again. Heer At Dawn and last-time-out Gowran scorer Zaur also make the shortlist.

  1. COVIGLIA (IRE)
  2. MANHATTAN DANDY (IRE)
  3. HEER AT DAWN
