Forecast

Maze Runner (5/1), Faughill (5/1), Vitudurum (6/1), Grasping At Straws (7/1), Dalton Highway (7/1), Lady Camelot (8/1), Endless Tangent (10/1), Itsalonglongroad (14/1), Marine One (14/1), Gasta (16/1), Upgraded (20/1), Bibliotheca (20/1), Jj's Journey (25/1), Swing Till Dawn (25/1), Neatly Put (25/1), Extrasensory (33/1), Cagey (50/1)

Verdict
With the yard still boasting a strong win and place strike rate around this time of the season, the Dermot Weld-trained DALTON HIGHWAY can progress from his runner-up position last month at Listowel and land the prize here under 7lb claimer Ben Coen. The patiently trained Endless Tangent looks capable of hitting the frame once again while Faughill, Lady Camelot and the Jim Bolger pair Gasta along with Swing Till Dawn require a second glance.
