Forecasts

Ragamuffin (10/11), Baratineur (5/1), Minella Away (7/1), Enforcement (7/1), Bang On (17/2), Flying Garry (12/1), The Herds Garden (14/1), Stupid Cupid (16/1), Fight For Love (25/1), Freedom Chimes (50/1), Gregarious (100/1), Witch From Rome (150/1), Ritas Legacy (200/1), Opera Buffa (250/1)

Verdict

The suspicion remains that RAGAMUFFIN may not be entirely straightforward, but it's hard to knock his recent Ffos Las breakthrough success and, with similar conditions forecast here, he will prove hard to beat under a penalty. Last year's winner Baratineur, The Herds Garden and Minella Away can do battle for minor honours.

  1. RAGAMUFFIN (IRE)
  2. BARATINEUR (FR)
  3. THE HERDS GARDEN
