Forecast

Canford Light (5/2), Merroir (5/1), Inside Intel (13/2), Custers Mistake (8/1), Easca Peasca (9/1), Isaiah (11/1), Pure Nature (12/1), Toughari (14/1), Grey Serge (20/1), Firstman (20/1), Rock Chica (25/1), Kasmiyra (28/1), Paso Doble (40/1), Dame Rapide (40/1), Joan Of Pimlico (100/1)

Verdict

EASCA PEASCA still has few miles on the clock so is fancied to build on an excellent recent third at Killarney and gain his first victory. Stable companion Isaiah is a similar type so feared most, although the Thomas Mullins-trained duo Canford Light and Toughari are worth a second look too in an open handicap.

  1. EASCA PEASCA (IRE)
  2. ISAIAH (IRE)
  3. CANFORD LIGHT (IRE)
