Farraaj (5/4), Graphic (7/2), Custom Cut (11/2), Trade Storm (13/2), Elleval (16/1), Flying The Flag (16/1), Lady Lara (16/1)

Verdict

Custom Cut continued his good progress to land a Group 3 at Leopardstown last week having finished well ahead of Elleval when scoring at Pontefract before that. He carries a penalty along with Graphic, another still improving after winning in France last month, though fast ground may be a problem for the latter. It took a couple of outings for FARRAAJ (NAP) to hit top gear but he's in flying form now. He returned the impressive winner of the John Smith's Cup over 1m2f here last month and gets the vote. Trade Storm is no back number if at his best, while a lengthy absence may not be too much of a hindrance for Group 3 winner Flying The Flag on his first start for Mike De Kock. Lady Lara has something to find despite the weight concession.
