Forecast

Line Out (7/2), Silent Sun (4/1), Zanjabeel (5/1), Runyon Rattler (5/1), Caridadi (9/1), Dixie Highway (9/1), Mr Picotee (12/1), Tidy Zag (14/1), Ask David (14/1), Beautiful Ben (16/1), Black Benny (16/1), Coolfighter (22/1), Theos Well (25/1), Shes Flat Tothemat (25/1)

Verdict
Historical advantage here for those ridden on or close to the pace, which will interest supporters of Ask David, Runyon Rattler and Tidy Zag. Ask David, interesting on return to 2m and just 2lb higher than last win, Runyon Rattler, twice finished runner-up in handicap hurdles in the spring, can grab the minor honours while, BLACK BENNY, promising third of eight, beaten 6L last day in Kilbeggan handicap hurdle, can build on that run here.
  1. Black Benny
  2. Runyon Rattler
  3. Ask David
