Verdict

A mass field in prospect but, in truth, very few of these can be given a realistic chance on form. The returning MENGLI KHAN appears to boast the soundest credentials on a solid maiden effort behind Ex Patriot and fair effort in graded novice company at Fairyhouse last season. With more progress to come, Gordon Elliott's charge could be up to this. Santiago de Cuba goes jumping for the first time and have won and then finished second in a pair of Killarney bumpers, he merits plenty consideration. Boris Grishenko is a potential improver while the long-absent Edelpour is a fascinating contender on old form.
  1. Mengli Khan
  2. Santiago de Cuba
  3. Boris Grishenko
