Sparkle'n'joy (4/1), Just Wonderful (9/2), Lethal Promise (11/2), Romme (11/2), Gossamer Wings (6/1), Cuban Surfer (10/1), Fantasy (12/1), Bodhicitta (16/1), Kiss For Luck (16/1), Scarlet Skis (25/1), Laura Bullion (50/1), Espirit D'Escalier (50/1), That's Not Me (66/1), Shandredee (100/1)

Verdict

Jim Bolger has a good record in this race and Cuban Surfer seemingly has a live chance if she can improve for her promising debut at Cork last week. Aidan O'Brien won 2016's renewal of this and his trio are fascinating contenders with debutantes Fantasy and Just Wonderful both capable of going well but preference is for stablemate GOSSAMER WINGS who has the benefit of a run under her belt already. The daughter of Scat Daddy is beautifully bred and showed promise on debut here last time out.
