Forecasts

Anibale Fly (3/1), Frodon (10/3), Minella Daddy (11/2), Might Bite (11/2), Amore Alato (8/1), Virgilio (10/1), Present Man (10/1), Churchtown Champ (20/1), Royal Vacation (33/1), Caracci Apache (33/1)

Verdict

In an open renewal of this event, marginal preference is given to ANIBALE FLY based on his excellent second in another competitive Grade 1 novices chase at Fairyhouse last time out where he gave the impression this longer trip would suit. Connections are expecting a big run and he is taken to account for Frodon who produced an outstanding effort to win at Cheltenham last time, especially given his young age. His stable companion Present Man also beat a good field last time and should be even better going right-handed here. 1. Anibale Fly 2. Frodon 3. Present Man
