Forecast

Baron Samedi (9/4), Benignitas (9/2), Pikaia (7/1), Little Brother (15/2), Isaiah (8/1), Brilliant Question (8/1), Rock Chica (11/1), Pineapple Express (14/1), Whosegottheshekles (14/1), Dame Rapide (16/1), Unanswered (20/1), Gudmanlarry (20/1), Franno (22/1), Manap (28/1), Romann (28/1), Craic Eile (80/1)

Verdict

BARON SAMEDI opened his account at Cork despite still not looking the finished article and, given the way he shapes, this longer trip should bring even more out of him. He's capable of outclassing his rivals and takes preference over the in-form Pikaia, with Little Brother also considered having scored over hurdles recently.

  1. BARON SAMEDI
  2. PIKAIA (IRE)
  3. LITTLE BROTHER (IRE)
