Verdict

Form lines look set to be closely tied in in this contest, and preference is for I AM THUNDER to get off the mark. He has looked progressive from each start to date and fared best of the re-opposing rivals in that Navan maiden. There is no reason why he cannot confirm that form. Boundless Power has similarly done nothing wrong in his two starts, but he has been off since March and may improve from this, and neither has Na Blianta Beo, who is starting to get the hang of things now. The same can be applied to Call Of The Jungle, while Mudawy is an interesting debutante given his top-level pedigree and connections.
