Verdict

NOMADIC EMPIRE has been in top form but hasn't had much go his way of late, so a chance is taken on him to gain some reward from a reduced mark. The in-form pair of Catch Cunningham and Mattice are feared, while a big run from the veteran Copper Knight can't be ruled out in a race that's named in his honour.

  1. NOMADIC EMPIRE (IRE)
  2. CATCH CUNNINGHAM (IRE)
  3. MATTICE
