Forecasts

Diamond Cauchois (4/6), Bapaume (6/4), Lieutenant Colonel (10/1), Maggio (66/1)

Verdict

DIAMOND CAUCHOIS confirmed his continuing improvement and progress with a fine performance in the Grade 2 Galmoy hurdle here earlier this month behind Presenting Percy and can maintain his breakthrough in this contest. The Willie Mullins-trained Bapaume can be considered better than his last run in the Irish Champion hurdle and can perform worthier here.
  1. Diamond Cauchois
  2. Bapaume
  3. Lieutenant Colonel
