Forecasts

Monbeg Legend (11/4), Royal Village (9/2), Our Three Sons (13/2), Call Me Vic (7/1), Cusheen Bridge (7/1), Exitas (8/1), Beau Du Brizais (10/1), Easy Street (14/1), Earthmoves (16/1), Sporting Boy (25/1)

Verdict

Despite giving away plenty of weight here MONBEG LEGEND is fancied to further enhance his impressive strike rate and put quite simply he just looks too classy for these rivals. Cusheen Bridge at the opposite end of the weights is the most feared of the rivals and he looks potentially well handicapped coming into this. Unexposed Beau Du Brizais is also respected and has plenty of time yet to improve.
  1. Monbeg Legend
