Betting

Forecast

Enniskillen (6/4), Need To Know (9/2), Equal Status (9/2), Treo Eile (5/1), Blue Templar (12/1), Oscar Day (20/1), Froggy (20/1), Mia's Milan (20/1), Ballydarsi (50/1), Just Wait And See (66/1)

Verdict
Two-time runner up Enniskillen ought to give this contest another fair crack and would prove a deserving winner. He warmed up nicely in a hunter chase last month but isn't getting any younger at 12. Treo Eile was fourth a year ago and has been motoring along nicely in the point-to-point sphere as preparation for a second tilt. Need To Know can go close assuming he's in the mood but it might be worth speculating that first-time cheekpieces will bring about some improvement in EQUAL STATUS. His trainer is a master in this sphere and at just six he could have more to come if taking to the challenge under an excellent amateur rider.
  1. Equal Status
  2. Treo Eile
  3. Enniskillen
