Forecasts

Sea Wolf (2/1), Alexios Komnenos (4/1), Flight Risk (4/1), True Valour (6/1), Mjjack (10/1), Texas Rock (12/1), Dragon Fei (14/1), Foxtrot Charlie (33/1), Misty Birnam (33/1)

Verdict

Flight Risk was a Group 3 winner last time out on seasonal bow and must be respected on that showing, but his overall profile means he can be bypassed for win purposes at the likely prices. Sea Wolf scored over C&D last time and, conversely, has a terrific strike-rate so is not to be overlooked quickly. Dragon Fei has been in super form but may find the trip sharp enough while British raider Mjjack could improve and have a say. Both runners from the Stack yard are intriguing. Misty Birnam shouldn't be harshly judged on his Irish debut over an inadequate trip at Cork and the ex-Mike De Kock inmate could leave behind but stablemate ALEXIOS KOMNENOS gets the nod here. A maiden winner first time out last summer, he then ran Churchill to a neck in a Group 3 contest at Leopardstown, form that stands out in this context. If he's ready to roll, he looks the one to beat.
  1. Alexios Komnenos
