Forecasts

Spades Are Trumps (9/2), School Boy Hours (11/2), Atlantic Shore (11/2), Enjoy D'allen (7/1), Eurobot (15/2), Stormy Judge (8/1), Forza Milan (9/1), Arverne (10/1), The Dabbler (16/1), Mr Hendricks (20/1), Foxy Jacks (25/1), Key Commander (28/1)

Verdict

SPADES ARE TRUMPS shaped far better than the bare result (hampered 3 out) when fifth in the 12-runner Punchestown handicap won by the re-opposing Atlantic Shore in January. Gavin Cromwell's charge enjoys a handy pull at the weights with that rival here and is taken to emerge on top this time. Stablemate Arverne remains open to improvement and is also shortlisted, along with Enjoy D'allen.

  1. SPADES ARE TRUMPS (IRE)
  2. ATLANTIC SHORE (IRE)
  3. ARVERNE (FR)
