Verdict

BELGROVE has improved 4lb over the summer without winning thanks mainly to the relationship built up with jockey Davy Russell and is taken to get off the mark land the spoils here. Billy De Kid, who got his head in front in his third chase beating 13 rivals by a head last month and Templemichael could well hit the frame in this company.
