Verdict

The J P McManus-owned AUVERGNAT can step up on his third of 14 in this contest 12-months ago and land the spoils on return to the track, ahead of potentially game handicapper, High Sparrow from the Joseph O'Brien yard and the Willie Mullins-trained Suinda. Nith of 14 in this race last year, Freedom Statue could go well at a price if making the line-up.
