Forecast

Jepeck (5/1), Pantxoa (5/1), Dolatulo (6/1), Sybarite (7/1), Pentiffic (15/2), One Conemara (9/1), Join Together (12/1), Connies Cross (12/1), There's No Panic (16/1), Legal Legend (20/1), Grove Pride (25/1), Ballytober (25/1), De Boitron (33/1), Goodnight Vienna (40/1), Rally (50/1), Lets Get Serious (66/1), Tin Pot Man (100/1), Total Rebellion (125/1)

Verdict
Some battle-hardened warriors contest this and although SYBARITE has the habit of getting behind in his races there is every chance that this stamina test will suit him admirably. Last year's runner-up Join Together can go well again, but has to turn round recent form with Pantxoa. .One Conemara has proven stamina and may benefit from the application of cheekpieces.
  1. Sybarite
  2. Pantxoa
