Verdict

A fiendishly competitive handicap in which it may pay to side with lightly-raced hurdler PLACE DES VOSGES. A winner at Listowel in June, she wasn't ideally served by the run of the race when fourth at Down Royal next time. She may have more to offer in handicaps and earns the vote back up in trip. Jazzaway and Stratum can also feature, along with Black Mischief and Visionarian.

  1. PLACE DES VOSGES (IRE)
  2. JAZZAWAY (IRE)
  3. STRATUM
