Forecast

Bhutan (3/1), Hey Little Boy (11/2), You Can't Catch Me (7/1), Allardyce (15/2), Rio Lobo (8/1), Sam King (10/1), Pete So High (12/1), Major Destination (16/1), Cecil Corbett (16/1), Fred The Foot (16/1), Babbling Stream (20/1), Commander Won (20/1), Schindlers Ark (25/1), Rocky Court (25/1), Ar Eagla Na Heagla (25/1), Nikodam (33/1)

Verdict
Gordon Elliott has dominated this race in recent times, and CECIL CORBETT makes most appeal of the yard's representatives here given he's much lower over hurdles, and potentially well handicapped in this discipline. Bhutan should appreciate the step up in trip after a fair effort last time, and merits respect, as does the thriving You Can't Catch Me, who relishes top of the ground.
  1. Cecil Corbett
  2. Bhutan
