Verdict

Another thoroughly-competitive Apprentice Derby that can go to POWERFUL KIERAN. He is the only representative of a yard that has won this twice in recent years and he's run well in 2 deep big-field handicaps this month. Jim Bolger usually has one ready for this also and Beyond Happy looks very interesting stepped up in trip. Sea Ducor was in red-hot form over hurdles when last seen and is feared.

  1. POWERFUL KIERAN (IRE)
  2. BEYOND HAPPY (IRE)
  3. SEA DUCOR
