Monsieur Jourdain (11/4), Close House (3/1), Top Cat Henry (7/2), Wind Of Hope (7/1), Hindon Road (9/1), Wayupinthesky (12/1), Bertie Milan (14/1), Molten Brown (18/1), Quel Elite (33/1), Bollin Buster (66/1)
A race for the National Hunt purists which is certain to be fiercely contested. Plenty of these runners have form in this race at the Perth April Festival previously, and Monsieur Jourdain arrives seeking a fourth success of the campaign. However, he was a shade fortunate that CLOSE HOUSE departed at the last at Charm Park in March, and that former useful rules campaigner for David Pipe looks an interesting stable debutant for Phil Kirby. 2015 Buccleuch Cup winner Wayupinthesky also looks likely to be competitve and comes into the race seeking a hat-trick following Point-to-Point victories at Friars Haugh and Corbridge.
