Questionare (7/2), Sinjaari (4/1), Sir Ron Priestley (9/2), Constantinople (11/2), Fox Premier (9/1), Good Birthday (12/1), Great Example (14/1), Almania (16/1), Babbo's Boy (18/1), Severance (20/1), Majestic Dawn (20/1), Summer Moon (20/1), South Pacific (22/1), Eminence (25/1), Leroy Leroy (25/1), Kaloor (25/1), Persian Moon (33/1), Antilles (50/1), Kuwait Currency (66/1)

Verdict

A tricky race to end day three but SOUTH PACIFIC has shaped as if he's crying out for this step up in trip and the form of his win from Leopardstown received a timely boost here on Wednesday. He's closely matched with Eminence on the form of their Naas run last time and he gets similar positives to his aforementioned stablemate. Sir Ron Priestley has won well on both his recent starts and could go well if he handles the ground.
  1. South Pacific
  2. Eminence
  3. Sir Ron Priestley
