Sceau Royal (1/2), Shantou Rock (4/1), Adrien Du Pont (4/1), Ballycamp (100/1)

Verdict

He may not be infallible but SCEAU ROYAL has looked a class act over fences so far and he certainly impressed in demolishing a Grade 1 field at Sandown last time. It will be a surprise if he can't give 5lb and a beating to his three opponents here. Shantou Rock is not dismissed out of hand and Dan Skelton will have a good handle on his merits, given that one of his inmates North Hill Harvey is the only horse to finish ahead of the favourite over fences. Adrien Du Pont drops in trip, but a positive ride could bring his proven stamina into play towards the business end.
  1. Sceau Royal
  2. Shantou Rock
