Forecast

Makitorix (4/9), Big Ben (3/1), Motcomb Street (7/1), Ana Lichious (14/1), Wait Here (20/1), Anguino (25/1), La Regle (40/1), Dark Du Tabert Aa (50/1)

Verdict
The Joseph O'Brien-trained Big Ben, who may have to settle for second again, will test the resolve of Willie Mullins newcomer MAKITORIX a €150,000 purchase in November for owner Paul Connell. From a mixed bunch, possibly Wait Here could improve to hit the frame.
  1. Makitorix
  2. Big Ben
