Verdict

GENTLEMANSGAME's second to Gaillard Du Mesnil at Leopardstown in February is the best piece of form on offer and he has the obvious scope for better still after only 2 starts under Rules so he looks the way to go. Grand Paradis made light work of a Grade 3 field at Thurles last time so he looks the chief threat, with Frere Tuck perhaps pick of the Mullins quartet.
