French Minstrel (7/4), Thorn (5/2), Retrospect (10/3), Ray's The One (11/1), Tralee Hills (11/1), Fleeting Visit (25/1), Viaduct (33/1), Alchemystique (50/1), Sherpa Trail (80/1)

Verdict

FRENCH MINSTREL has been a real credit to connections in recent months by winning his last three starts. A further 3 lb rise might not be enough to stop the dual C&D winner. Thorn won over C&D himself last month and he has to be taken seriously again today. Alchemystique is one to note in the market on handicap debut after getting a mark very quickly.
