Verdict

DON DIABLO is taken to come good at the third time of asking over hurdles. Collo Meo could pose a threat if recapturing the level of his penultimate Limerick second, while Que Famoso is a lightly-raced from a leading stable who likely has more to offer.

  1. DON DIABLO (IRE)
  2. COLLO MEO (IRE)
  3. QUE FAMOSO (IRE)
