Forecast

Monksland (8/11), Lieutenant Colonel (6/1), Oscar Sam (6/1), Polar Present (7/1), Charmix (14/1), Shanpallas (16/1), Cantlow (25/1), Montys Meadow (33/1), Top Of The Town (33/1), Notwhatiam (50/1), Mr Picotee (66/1), Carrigeen Acebo (100/1)

Verdict
MONKSLAND looks the one to beat, he goes well fresh as a rule and will just have had his senses sharpened by last week's spin around Punchestown in a charity contest on the Flat. His run in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham makes him the standout and it won't be any surprise if he shows his well-being by taking this. Lieutenant Colonel is no mug and should leave last month's disappointment over fences behind. If he can do that, he'll stand out as the chief threat to the selection. Charmix starts for the first time since moving to Gordon Elliott's yard and is intriguing is such while the consistent Oscar Sam is also capable of getting involved.
  1. Monksland
  2. Charmix
  3. Lieutenant Colonel
