Verdict

To all intents and purposes, this looks to be between Buster Thomas and AINTREE MY DREAM. Their form is a fair bit better than anything else that runs here, and though they're penalised accordingly they should have no trouble seeing the rest off. Preference is for the Skelton-trained gelding owing to his decent performance in a Grade 2 two starts ago, but the first-named has already won at this level and should be capable of improving. Newcomer Orchardstown Cross has acquitted himself well in points and is taken to complete the tricast. 1. Aintree My Dream 2. Buster Thomas 3. Orchardstown Cross
