Emily Moon (7/2), Popong (7/2), A Wave Of The Sea (11/2), Ingleby Mackenzie (11/1), Timoteo (11/1), Cusp Of Carabelli (12/1), Capuccimix (14/1), Grand Partner (16/1), Top Moon (16/1), Quamino (16/1), Polished Steel (18/1), Ask Nile (22/1), Pont Aven (25/1), Jack Hackett (28/1), Jan Maat (33/1), Uisce Beatha (40/1), Or Jaune De Somoza (50/1), Crazywork De Vassy (66/1)

Verdict

POPONG has a fair amount of experience for a handicap debutant and following an excellent second in novice company a month ago, her mark looks very fair. She gets the nod in what is a tricky puzzle to solve, with Cusp of Carabelli and Polished Steel just two potential threats.

  1. POPONG (IRE)
  2. CUSP OF CARABELLI (IRE)
  3. POLISHED STEEL (IRE)
