Betting

Forecast

Mengli Khan (9/4), Red Jack (11/4), Makitorix (3/1), Le Richebourg (9/2), Early Doors (14/1), Hardline (14/1), Morgan (33/1)

Verdict
Mengli Khan clearly sets the standard following an easy Grade 3 victory at Navan last time, but there are a number of potential improvers in this field including MAKITORIX. Willie Mullins often does well with his French imports and this son of Makfi really did look like he could be anything on debut over hurdles (albeit in a much weaker contest) at Listowel last time. Red Jack is also unbeaten over hurdles and should be in the mix.
  1. Makitorix
  2. Mengli Khan
  3. Red Jack
