Forecast

Gee Rex (5/4), Blue Wood (5/1), Atlas (15/2), Airgead (10/1), Never Back Down (12/1), Spiorad Saoirse (12/1), Highly Approved (14/1), Ducky Mallon (18/1), Oneiroi (20/1), Lucky Number (20/1), Able Jack (22/1), Jered Maddox (25/1), Ellheidi (28/1), Rince Deireanach (40/1), Qaabil (50/1), Starlight Red (80/1)

Verdict

Penalised Curragh winner Gee Rex isn't dismissed lightly but there may be something in here to take his measure. Ducky Mallon and Spiorad Saoirse return from breaks and both are capable of winning efforts this summer, while Highly Approved is presumably ready to roll with Colin Keane booked (figures of 212 together last year). ATLAS has gained both career turf wins around here and showed up well over C&D 10 days ago. Joey Sheridan's claim should give him decent prospects if he can stay in touch through the middle part of the race.
  1. Atlas
  2. Highly Approved
  3. Gee Rex
