Verdict

Lots with chances. EUROBOT got no further than the first in the Irish National at Fairyhouse last time but remains on a good mark and is worth another chance. Young Dev arrives on the back of an excellent second there so warrants lots of respect. Course-winners Smoking Gun and Freewheelin Dylan both need considering too and can fill the minor honours.

  1. EUROBOT
  2. YOUNG DEV (IRE)
  3. SMOKING GUN (IRE)
