Forecasts

Our Duke (5/6), Road To Respect (7/2), Sub Lieutenant (6/1), Alpha Des Obeaux (12/1), More Of That (14/1), Outlander (16/1), Zabana (25/1), Carlingford Lough (33/1)

Verdict

The out of form could be the one to take them along here with Sub Lieutenant and possibly OUR DUKE following closely. The seven-year-old had a fine first-season chasing campaign culminated in a stunning win in the Irish Grand National in April. Road To Respect and More Of That can battle for the minors.
  1. Our Duke
  2. Road To Respect
  3. More Of That
