Forecast

Top Ville Ben (11/8), Black Mischief (10/3), Time And Times (7/1), Blue Comet (15/2), Solomon Grey (9/1), Mountain Chimes (12/1), Awake At Midnight (16/1), Snow Rescue (40/1), Celestial Chimes (66/1), Black Jack Jaxon (80/1), Louie (80/1), Classula (100/1), Massini's Dream (150/1), Sidsteel (200/1), Way Up High (250/1)

Verdict
Nicky Henderson has landed this contest four times in six years and his newcomer Top Ville Ben will likely take plenty beating today. Of those with experience however, TIMES AND TIMES run at Kilbeggan stands out. Adrian Heskin is riding with confidence right now and they can land the finale. Another newcomer, Solomon Grey, is interesting for Harry Skelton while Black Mischief must settle better after his Plumpton debut effort. 1. Time And Times 2. Top Ville Ben 3. Black Mischief
