Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Not so competitive as the numbers suggest, and KILGOREY looks the way to go having hinted strongly at a revival when seventh in a big-field handicap at Killarney last week. Shake Him Up failed to justify support when fifth at Down Royal last month but still posted a good effort so must enter calculations. One Free Man, Synone and Orcadian Symphony can fight it out for minor honours.

Betting Forecast

2/1 Shake Him Up (Ire), 80/1 Chesterville (Ire), 4/1 Kilgorey (Ire), 9/1 Synone (Ire), 10/1 One Free Man (Ire), 33/1 Roman Dylan (Ire), 12/1 Orcadian Symphony (Ire), 50/1 Get Connected (Ire), 33/1 Moakland (Ire), 66/1 Galros Jimmy (Ire), 66/1 Rocky Stream (Ire), 33/1 Opie Houdini (Ire), 50/1 California King (Ire), 28/1 Rodgers Park (Ire), 66/1 Lanziano (Fr)
