Betting

Forecast

Saglawy (4/1), Davids Charm (5/1), Rock De Baune (7/1), Red Gerry (8/1), Royal Illusion (10/1), Dalton Highway (10/1), Royal Aide (10/1), Nessun Dorma (12/1), Eminent Authority (12/1), Linger (14/1), Baba Boom (14/1), Newcross (14/1), Dinard Rose (20/1), Shamad (20/1), Shakespear'sgalley (25/1), Lever Du Soleil (25/1), Legal Spin (25/1), Golden Spear (25/1)

Verdict

C&D winner, DALTON HIGHWAY can continue his consistent run of form over the summer by landing the spoils here under top 5lb claimer, Andrew Slattery. The gelding, representing the yard that won this contest in 2012 with Voleuse De Coeurs, can get the better of David's Charm who can emerge as the main danger coming into the race on a four-timer following victories on the Flat and over hurdles in the last month. The Willie Mullins yard landed the last two renewals at this venue before redevelopment of the track in 2016. The trainer runs four here, with Royal Illusion a lively outsider. The Joseph O'Brien-trained Shakespear'sgalley and bottom weight, Dinard Rose should not be underestimated.
