Forecasts

Cadmium (6/5), Robin Des Foret (9/2), Rashaan (6/1), Miss Sapphire (8/1), Ornua (9/1), Le Martalin (10/1), Screaming Rose (20/1), Balbir Du Mathan (33/1), The Last Marju (40/1)

Verdict

CADMIUM is in fine tune right now and should be able to take this out for last year's winning trainer Willie Mullins. The champion trainer fires a quartet at this target, with Robin Des Foret perhaps the next best of them. Le Martalin is closely matched with the selection and respected while smart hurdler Rashaan has run well in both starts over the larger obstacles and can improve.
  1. Cadmium
