Verdict

SUMMERGHAND and Albasheer couldn't be seperated in a competitive York sprint last month and can again come to the fore here with David O'Meara's grand veteran taken to edge it on this occasion. The home challenge is headed by C&D winner Prisoner's Dilemma, although Volatile Analyst, Heavenly Power, Never Shout Never and The Highway Rat all need factoring into a highly competitive sprint too.

  1. SUMMERGHAND (IRE)
  2. ALBASHEER (IRE)
  3. PRISONER'S DILEMMA
