Verdict

Plenty with chances in a very open handicap but Tramore winner DYMPNAS WELL didn't enjoy the rub of the green when sixth at Wexford last time and gets the nod here off an unchanged mark. Natural Breeze seems sure to make his presence felt but could be set for a fourth consecutive runner-up finish ahead of in-form maiden Alexharwill.

  1. DYMPNAS WELL (FR)
  2. NATURAL BREEZE (IRE)
  3. ALEXHARWILL (IRE)
