Betting

Forecast

Gold Seal (5/1), Racing Stripes (5/1), St Lawrence Gap (6/1), Eight Till Late (9/1), Apparition (10/1), Water Sprite (10/1), Jack Fiasco (10/1), The King Of Brega (11/1), You Can't Catch Me (12/1), Eiri Na Casca (14/1), Draycott Place (14/1), Fleurys Fort (16/1)

Verdict

Gold Seal is enjoying a fine season, getting a valuable Listowel pot last month via the stewards' room having finished a close second. The winner boosted that form by scoring at Clonmel yesterday but Joseph O'Brien's charge does have a slight stamina concern to defy here. JACK FIASCO was overlooked in the betting but there was no fluke about his Punchestown maiden success in June and he makes appeal as the sort to do better now going handicapping. Top-weight St Lawrence Gap ran well on the Flat recently and isn't overlooked while Draycott Place must bounce back having lost his way over fences but does run from a much-reduced mark here.
  1. Jack Fiasco
  2. St Lawrence Gap
  3. Gold Seal
