Chelkar (5/1), Whiskey Sour (5/1), Coeur de Lion (11/2), Dubawi Fifty (6/1), Lagostovegas (10/1), Stratum (10/1), Dannyday (10/1), White Desert (10/1), Meri Devie (12/1), Look My Way (16/1), Cleonte (40/1), Hassle (50/1), Sam Missile (50/1), Daybreak Boy (50/1), Cayirli (50/1), Kloud Gate (66/1), Mirsaale (66/1), Percy Street (100/1), Garo De Juilley (100/1), Battalion (100/1)

Verdict

Willie Mullins won this last year and he has some fascinating contenders for this year's renewal. While Chelkar would appear to be the first string with Ryan Moore on board, MERI DEVIE is a fascinating contender and is likely to be in good heart after her win at Punchestown last time. Lagostovegas is another mare who would appear to be on a workable mark. Coeur De Lion has only been narrowly beaten on each of his last two starts and he couldn't be ruled out in his current form.
  1. Meri Devie
  2. Lagostovegas
  3. Coeur de Lion
