Betting

Forecast

Liquid Luck (7/2), Spelga (4/1), Spruce Meadows (9/2), Ela Katrina (11/2), Alabaster (7/1), Moving Forward (8/1), Drakensberg (11/1), Tashman (11/1), Call Me Dolly (11/1), Cautious Approach (12/1), Allora Yeats (20/1), Cape Islay (20/1), Dawn Of The West (22/1), Persian Lion (25/1), Timemakesitfine (25/1), Heatstroke (33/1), Chess Grand Master (80/1)

Verdict

TASHMAN has been in fine form since the restart and with this step up in trip likely to be to his benefit too he's taken to add to his earlier Roscommon victory. Alabaster is on a long losing run on the level but has scored over hurdles recently so seems sure to make his presence felt. Course-winner Ela Katrina is worth a second look too.

  1. TASHMAN (IRE)
  2. ALABASTER
  3. ELA KATRINA
