Forecasts

Insignia Of Rank (3/1), Dance Emperor (7/2), Wexford Opera (9/2), Geological (9/2), Masalai (5/1), Saga Altais (12/1), Vocal Response (20/1)

Verdict

These look closely matched on current form but MASALAI looked unlucky last time and he is one the more consistent types in this. He will be partnered by one of the most experienced riders as will Insignia Of Rank who showed courage in going down to an equally game sort at Leopardstown. Geological won with a bit to spare at Limerick and the third has run well since. He has plenty of weight to concede but he certainly knows where the finishing line is.
  1. Masalai
  2. Insignia Of Rank
  3. Geological
