Verdict

MERLIN GIANT made it third time lucky in bumpers when landing the odds at Ballinrobe recently and he is taken to make a winning debut in this sphere. Next on the list is Flora, who made an encouraging start to her career when fourth at Naas and promises to be suited by this step up in trip. Empyrea is likely to benefit from this stiffer test, too, and she is also shortlisted, along with Rekero.

  1. MERLIN GIANT (FR)
  2. FLORA (IRE)
  3. EMPYREA (IRE)
