Verdict

A typically competitive renewal of this valuable handicap with several in with chance. However, the vote goes to FOOLS RUSH IN, who was unable to adopt his customary front-running tactics but still managed to improve when scoring at Chester last time. He's got a good attitude and is taken to complete the hat-trick. Riot, Masen, Dream Today and San Andreas and just a handful of potential dangers.

  1. FOOLS RUSH IN (IRE)
  2. RIOT (IRE)
  3. MASEN
