Forecast

The Mpex Kid (5/2), Atlas (9/2), Fridtjof Nansen (7/1), Tanseeq (7/1), Khafaaq (17/2), She's A Babe (14/1), Qaabil (14/1), War Hero (16/1), Lizbuncon (16/1), Eastern Racer (22/1), Mandolin Wind (28/1), Phoenix Open (33/1), Foreign Legion (80/1)

Verdict
Atlas had a host of these in behind when scoring at Leopardstown recently but Denis Hogan's charge has plenty more on his plate this time and may do well to follow up. TANSEEQ was one of them on what was only his third career start on turf. He's certainly got the scope to be in the firing line from his 2lb higher mark and should go well. Both Fairyhouse winner The Mpex Kid and bottom-weight Lizbuncon also appeal as having more to offer while Qaabil can be involved if the new headgear works.
  1. Tanseeq
  2. The Mpex Kid
  3. Qaabil
