Forecast

Monkshood (9/4), Burren Life (3/1), Moonshine Bay (7/2), Chris's Dream (5/1), Last Man Standing (6/1), Carrigeen Acebo (25/1)

Verdict
CHRIS'S DREAM did it well when winning over timber last time and was sold for a lot of money soon after. He has reportedly been crying out for this trip so is fancied to get the better of the Gordon Elliot-trained pair of Burren Life and Monkshood. Burren Life ran well in a similar event on his penultimate start and a reproduction of that effort will see him go close, and Monkshood ran too bad to be true last time and is better judged on his previous hattrick. Last Man Standing and Moonshine Bay both have ability and are not ruled out by any means in a good race.
  1. Chris's Dream
  2. Burren Life
  3. Last Man Standing
