Forecast

Castletownshend (4/1), Madaket Mystery (4/1), Defilade (9/2), Aced It (5/1), Royal Casamento (5/1), Mostaqqer (7/1), Grey Streak (15/2), Crassus (11/1), Nailed Down (16/1)

Verdict

Marginal preference is for CASTLETOWNSHEND who has posted a series of good efforts at the Curragh and can gain a deserved victory in this less-demanding company. Madaket Mystery has the form to pose a big threat but needs to shrug aside a modest showing at Tipperary, while Defilade is less exposed so another to consider.
