Verdict

ARTIC LIGHT was right back on track returned to this sphere when runner-up at Cork last month and could be the answer to this open handicap. Rightplacerighttime and Burlesque Queen are just a couple of potential threats.

  1. ARCTIC LIGHT
  2. RIGHTPLACERIGHTIME (IRE)
  3. BURLESQUE QUEEN (IRE)
