Little Clarinet (7/2), Alwarda (11/2), Goodnite Irina (8/1), Highly Approved (8/1), Tio Esteban (8/1), Silk Cravat (9/1), Masalai (10/1), Arbourfield (12/1), Victorious Secret (14/1), Eagle Reel (16/1), Come At Dawn (20/1), Popsicle (33/1), Tomwontlisten (33/1)

Verdict

TIO ESTEBAN showed enough in two previous goes at this trips in handicaps and a repeat of his Cork second in April may be good enough here. Top weight Little Clarinet comes here in top form and rates the main threat with Highly Approved completing the short list after her decent effort at Sligo this week.
  1. Tio Esteban
  2. Little Clarinet
  3. Highly Approved
