Verdict

Ultra-competitive stuff and it may pay to side with Aidan O'Brien's LOUGH DERG. He shaped better than his finishing position would suggest in a Group 2 over C&D when last seen in June and it would come as no surprise to see him make his mark now handicapping. Band of Outlaws is an intriguing contender operating from his last winning mark and along with Turbulence and Finans Bay heads the dangers.

  1. LOUGH DERG (IRE)
  2. BAND OF OUTLAWS (IRE)
  3. TURBULENCE (IRE)
