Verdict

Staxton won this against the far rail 12 months ago and EMPEROR SPIRIT, who was clear of the rest when narrowly denied at Ffos Las recently, is taken to repeat the feat from stall 1. Tim Easterby has taken this race twice in recent years and his trio Snash, Ava Go Joe and Hyperfocus all have each-way claims. Vintage Clarets also makes the shortlist.

  1. EMPEROR SPIRIT (IRE)
  2. SNASH (IRE)
  3. AVA GO JOE (IRE)
