Forecasts

Ben Button (2/5), Darkest Flyer (6/1), Hunters Call (9/1), Presenting Mahler (10/1), Kylecrue (12/1), Seskinane (12/1), Shadow Catcher (12/1), Lasoscar (14/1), Crosshue Boy (20/1), Waaheb (25/1), Gladiator King (25/1), Winter Lion (33/1)

Verdict

BEN BUTTON impressed when winning at Galway last week and looks an improved performer since joining this stable. The selection carries a 4lb penalty for that victory and can follow up here at the chief expense of top weight Kylecrue who has won this race for the past two years and can finish runner-up this time around. Darkest Flyer is another who appears to have improved for the change of yard and he can claim third ahead of Shadow Catcher.
