Forecast

Very Smart (4/1), Procurator (5/1), Piper Bomb (11/2), Kody Ridge (13/2), Caesar's Comet (10/1), Tuamhain (11/1), Adapt To Dan (14/1), Beau Rocko (14/1), Dash To Celebrate (16/1), Hatton Cross (16/1), Storm Blitz (20/1), Building Year (33/1), Prime Chief (40/1), Tessiesee (66/1)

Verdict

The Denis Hogan-trained CAESARS COMET can land a third career win following a number of solid and consistent efforts when last seen in May. The Acclamation gelding can defy top weight getting the better of stablemate, Adapt To Dan who can go well at a price and C&D winner Piper Bomb who ran a good race behind Blankiedoodie at Bellewstown last week.
  1. Caesar's Comet
  2. Adapt To Dan
  3. Piper Bomb
