Verdict

GENEVER DRAGON has performed respectably in better races the last twice and, with Theo Gillard back on claiming 5 lb, he's fancied to put up a bold bid from the front at a track where his stable does well. His in-form stablemate, Two Blondes, may prove the main danger, although White Turf also warrants plenty of respect.

  1. GENEVER DRAGON (IRE)
  2. TWO BLONDES (IRE)
  3. WHITE TURF (IRE)
