Forecasts

Missed Approach (9/2), Delusionofgrandeur (5/1), Bells 'n' Banjos (7/1), Mister Don (8/1), Ballymalin (8/1), Relentless Dreamer (10/1), Southfield Theatre (10/1), Full Jack (12/1), Gonalston Cloud (12/1), Looking Well (12/1), Dancing Shadow (12/1), Azure Fly (14/1)

Verdict

A good renewal and probably a better one than last year when Dancing Shadow beat Gonalston Cloud, Azure Fly and Full Jack. With that in mind, it may pay to concentrate on top-weight Delusionofgrandeur, the unexposed Ballymalin and MISSED APPROACH, with preference for the latter who has proved his ability to stay this trip, is attractively weighted and will appreciate better ground if rain stays away. In an open-looking contest, cases can also be made for Southfield Theatre, Relentless Dreamer, Bells 'n' Banjos, Looking Well and Mister Don.
  1. Missed Approach
  2. Delusionofgrandeur
