Verdict

Tough to rule any of these out but it could pay to side with SIR ALLEN. He's just the sort that Andy Slattery does well with in handicaps, so he's taken to get off the mark especially if the market speaks in his favour. Inchiquin Star showed improved form when finishing runner-up in a similar event at Naas last month so she could provide the biggest danger, ahead of Snapius.

  1. SIR ALLEN
  2. INCHIQUIN STAR (IRE)
  3. SNAPIUS (IRE)
