Forecast

Hardline (9/10), Arvico Bleu (2/1), Capital Force (6/1), Speaker Connolly (12/1), Stowaway Forever (16/1), All's Quiet (40/1)

Verdict
The opener may well go to Gigginstown but their duo are hard to separate. Hardline was the pick of these over hurdles and returns to action with Gordon Elliott's string firing. He's a graded winner over timber and much respected but ARVICO BLEU might get his measure. Henry De Bromhead's charge wasn't beaten far on chase bow at Listowel and the winner has given that form a boost. He can go one better. The selections stablemate Capital Force cannot be dismissed with any certainty.
  1. Arvico Bleu
  2. Hardline
  3. Capital Force
