Mall Dini (5/6), Bachasson (7/2), Edwulf (9/2), Robin Thyme (14/1), Just Cause (20/1), Champagne Harmony (22/1), Sunchyme (25/1), Arkwrisht (25/1), Master Appeal (33/1), Red Giant (33/1), Honest Robber (100/1), Too Many Notes (100/1), Moonunderwater (100/1), Follow Your Dream (100/1)

Verdict

Bachasson's trainer has a fine record in this race, winning the previous two renewals, but there are enough doubts about his jumping to make him a risk now. MALL DINI's debut over C&D in November was bursting with promise and, while slightly disappointing upped in trip since, he's fancied to deliver now in a race that lacks depth. Edwulf has been consistent at this game and holds a claim now dropped in trip today. Robin Thyme is one to watch out for on chase bow while Just Cause should bounce back from a disappointing recent effort at Limerick. 1. Mall Dini 2. Bachasson 3. Edwulf
