8/13
Front-runner who found it tough trying to dominate the Fred Winter at Cheltenham but he'd twice made all at Warwick prior to that and looks to give it another good shot back in calmer waters.

€45,000 Presenting gelding. Not beaten far into sixth in a bumper in December but well held in pair of 19f novice hurdles since. Down in trip for third run. Best to look elsewhere.

Forecasts

Cabot Cliffs (8/13), Olympic Conqueror (2/1), Grisbi De Berce (7/1), My Bobby Dazzler (28/1), Benito (28/1), Francolin (50/1), Gerard Mentor (50/1), Representing Bob (50/1), Wendreda (200/1), Bold Red (250/1), Emojie (250/1)

Verdict

OLYMPIC CONQUEROR escapes a penalty for his recent Fakenham success as that came in a conditional jockeys' event so he's taken to make the most of the weight he receives from dual-winner Cabot Cliffs. Grisbi de Berce may prove best of the remainder.

  1. OLYMPIC CONQUEROR (IRE)
  2. CABOT CLIFFS (IRE)
  3. GRISBI DE BERCE (FR)
