Zadarska has only looked moderate so far and will probably do better when sent over obstacles. Stormy Oscar has been going well enough though he's been unable to find a finishing burst and though JUPITOR couldn't handle the pace when Shotgun Paddy burst past him at Thurles the quicker ground should be a bonus and he's given the vote. Crocus Bay hasn't done much wrong and he was only headed on the line by Inish Island at Clonmel though the form hasn't worked out particularly well.
