Forecasts

Turnberry Isle (11/8), Sherkali (4/1), The Corporal (6/1), Pacific Ocean (9/1), Fulvio (12/1), Fugacious (12/1), Dunkirk Harbour (14/1), Balefire (16/1), Cuban Hope (16/1), Manjeer (20/1), King's Vow (20/1), Snow Ocean (25/1), Njord (25/1), St Estephe (33/1), Rule The Sea (33/1), Apprenticeship (40/1), Casa Romano (50/1), Duhallow Noelie (66/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien runs four in this field and the market can likely sort them out, though The Corporal shaped nicely last time at Naas and may have the best claims ahead of once-raced Turnberry Isle and potentially useful newcomer Pacific Ocean. Dermot Weld's team are in good form right now and his newcomer SHERKALI is given the nod for a winning start here.
  1. Sherkali
  2. Pacific Ocean
  3. The Corporal
