Forecasts

Mishriff (13/8), Adayar (5/2), Dubai Honour (6/1), Addeybb (8/1), Sealiway (12/1), Al Aasy (16/1), Bolshoi Ballet (33/1), Mac Swiney (40/1), Foxes Tales (40/1), Euchen Glen (150/1)

Verdict

MISHRIFF found Adayar too strong when the pair met in the King George at this course back in July, but there must be a good chance the tables will be turned over this shorter trip. There isn't much between the pair judged on their peak efforts and Mishriff seems to have had the better preparation, arriving here on the back of an emphatic victory at York. Last year's winner Addeybb can place.

  1. MISHRIFF (IRE)
  2. ADAYAR (IRE)
  3. ADDEYBB (IRE)
