Forecasts

Auvergnat (2/1), Urgent De Gregaine (7/2), Cantlow (6/1), Aubusson (6/1), Cause Of Causes (13/2), Vicomte Du Seuil (12/1), Bertie Boru (12/1), Kingswell Theatre (14/1), Need To Know (25/1), Adam du Breteau (50/1), Inis Meain (50/1)

Verdict

Cause Of Causes is the stand-out performer in this contest, but he has top weight and is usually campaigned with spring targets in mind. On this occasion, the same owner's Cantlow and AUVERGNAT might be his superior in recipt of weight. The selection has progressed since his last appearance over these fences and can win for a trainer who specialises in this type of contest. French raider Urgent De Gregaine is much respected and can go well, while Need To Know is an interesting outsider.
  1. Auvergnat
  2. Urgent De Gregaine
  3. Cantlow
