7/2

Half-brother to Bacardys, a top-class performer for this yard, the Lucarno gelding needs maximum respect for trainer with 32% strike-rate in bumpers over the last 12 months.

Well Chosen gelding who dam was unraced sister to Irish National winner Hear The Echo. Yard has fair record in these contests.

Won a point-to-point on debut back in May 2017 and now makes a belated debut under rules. Form of that success not strong and hard to make case for after the absence.

612-0OR:
9/2

Changed hands for £150,000 buy after getting off the mark in point-to-point at the second attempt in May 2016. Somewhat disconcerting that it has taken this amount of time to reach the racecourse. Market will tell more.

7/1

Placed in both bumpers so far, latest when 17L second to Rebel Og at Downpatrick (2m2½f, good) in August. Blinkers added and likely has to improve to better that result.

411-11OR:
1/1

Picked up by Gigginstown for £210,000 after winning in second point-to-point start in May (fell previously). Hard to know what that form amounts to, but clearly has potential and needs respecting.

Related to winners Sealous Scott and O Ceallaigh, no shock if the Doyen mare learns from this first visit to the racecourse.

Big Bad Bob filly is a half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Dandy Dan. Second runner for Gordon Elliott here and mount of Jamie Codd. Respected.

Betting

Forecast

The Very Man (1/1), Dionysis (7/2), Super Follo (9/2), Neptune (7/1), Bigbadandbeautiful (12/1), I'mstillyourbaby (12/1), Soi Cowboy (25/1), Ballyshannon Rose (50/1), Mama Tried (50/1)

Verdict

Not much to rely on in terms of discernible form in the finale. Blindly, it might be easiest to go with Dionysis, a half-brother to Bacardys, given he represents the trainer/jockey combo that farms these races. He'll be well-found in the betting as will The Very Man having fetched £210,000 out of the Gigginstown coffers. The form of the latter's point-to-point win remains untested. Super Follo has a big absence to defy, though isn't dismissed, but the vote is given to BIGBADANDBEAUTIFUL. The filly has plenty going for on paper and has an in-form Jamie Codd on her side.
