Forecast

Rathlin Rose (15/8), Knockanrawley (7/2), Baden (4/1), Midnight Monty (11/2), Winter Lion (9/1), More Buck's (16/1), Cabragh (25/1), Spanish Arch (66/1), Sentimentaljourney (100/1), Arbeo (100/1), Minellahalfcentury (100/1)

Verdict
Last year's winner RATHLIN ROSE is clearly the one they all have to beat here. A C&D winner last time out when he had a few of these in behind, he has the benefit of Captain Guy Disney in the saddle, an excellent jockey in these races. He was more than four lengths ahead of Midnight Monty last time and he could be the one to chase him home again, ahead of the reappearing More Buck's.
  1. Rathlin Rose
  2. Midnight Monty
  3. More Buck's
