Forecast

Mount Pelier (11/10), Valdieu (2/1), Fortune Street (3/1), Acronym (7/2), Baile Liam (9/1), Pakens Rock (10/1), Sinbad (33/1), Lahloob (33/1), Popcorn Sutton (50/1), Lostinvillierstown (66/1)

Verdict
MOUNT PELIER wasn't at his best on his final start, but his second to Carefully Selected at Leopardstown last Christmas represents warm form, and he ought to be hard to beat if ready to go. Valdieu put up his best effort when second at Punchestown last time, and looks a danger, while Acronym is the type to improve markedly from a promising debut.
  1. Mount Pelier
  2. Valdieu
