Verdict

Jonny Murtagh continues to fire in the winners and his SONNYBOYLISTON is taken to defy a hefty 13 lb rise for his victory over this C&D back in July. He's open to further improvement and first-time cheekpieces go on to eke out that bit extra. Tauran Shaman looks to be building towards something and he can chase the selection home, ahead of Kipling and Finans Bay in a wide-open finale.

  1. SONNYBOYLISTON (IRE)
  2. TAURAN SHAMAN (IRE)
  3. KIPLING (IRE)
