Forecast

Alpine Star (7/4), Santiago (9/4), Longclaw (4/1), Kassaba (4/1), Agent Zero (13/2), Baby Bear (14/1), Chrysalism (20/1), Craic Eile (25/1), Convincer (33/1), Nudge The Judge (66/1), Ahaziah (66/1), The Hard Harry (66/1)

Verdict
The Dermot Weld yard have a solid record in this race in the last eight years and their KASSABA can land the spoils here. The stable boast a 50% strike rate in this contest in the last eight years winning with three youngsters from six runners and can see off the challenges in the shape of the Jessica Harrington improver, Alpine Star and the Aiden O'Brien-trained Santiago. Progressive runs from Agent Zero, Longclaw and Chrysalism would not come as a surprise.
  1. Kassaba
  2. Alpine Star
  3. Santiago
