Betting

Forecast

Traffic Fluide (15/8), Menorah (9/4), Josses Hill (7/2), Art Mauresque (10/1), Vibrato Valtat (12/1), Third Intention (20/1)

Verdict
It would bring the house down if the ever-popular MENORAH could win this for a fourth time and despite the advancing years, he still has that touch of class about him and can pull it off again. Josses Hill can sometimes be held back by his jumping but if putting a clear round in, can claim second ahead of Traffic Fluide, who looks to be slowly coming back to form.
  1. Menorah
  2. Josses Hill
  3. Traffic Fluide
