Bon Retour (11/4), Koshari (4/1), Owenacurra Lass (9/2), Funky Dady (11/2), Fairyhill Run (6/1), Commentariolus (6/1), Dinard Rose (13/2), Madison To Monroe (14/1), Cahirdown Boy (33/1)

Verdict

COMMENTARIOLUS caught the eye a bit when fourth over C&D last time and is worth a chance to build on the promise of that run. The Willie Mullins-trained Bon Retour may benefit from the drop back in trip and looks next best ahead of

  1. COMMENTARIOLUS (IRE)
  2. BON RETOUR (IRE)
  3. OWENACURRA LASS (IRE)
