Betting

Forecast

Glenlivet (2/1), Gastara (9/2), Cubao (6/1), Make Me A Believer (8/1), Oscars Moonshine (9/1), Everglow (10/1), A Book Of Intrigue (12/1), Oscar Robertson (14/1), Saint Arvans (14/1), The Big Yin (16/1), Butte Montana (16/1), Litigate (20/1), Buckhorn George (22/1), Kilbrook (33/1), Robsam (33/1), Skylanna Breeze (40/1)

Verdict

Champion trainer Paul Nicholls has won the previous two renewals of this and boasts a formidable record in bumpers at the track. His €52,000 purchase Glenlivet therefore is afforded maximum respect on debut. A Book Of Intrigue has two wins already but will want to be well-improved to concede the weight now, while Cubao is also penalised for a winning debut at Ludlow in May. Any money behind the newcomers needs noting, with Tom Lacey's bumper record ensuring Saint Arvans is on the radar but previous C&D runner-up GASTARA is nicely-related and, if improving from that April effort, should have valid claims again.
