Betting

Forecast

Draconien (10/3), Roaring Bull (9/2), Cartwright (5/1), Nessun Dorma (11/2), Articulum (7/1), Celtic Rising (8/1), Rock De Baune (8/1), Another Barney (16/1)

Verdict
Rock De Baune is certainly one to watch in the betting given how JP Macmanus often does with his French recruits, but preference is for ROARING BULL. He was in the process of running a big race (though held) when falling at the last at Thurles last time out, and given the winner has franked the form in a very competitive Cheltenham Festival race since he may well be able to return to winning ways here. Cartwright wasn't far away in Grade 2 company last time out and completes the tricast.
  1. Roaring Bull
  2. Rock De Baune
  3. Cartwright
