Forecast

Freewheelin Dylan (5/2), Ballybrowney Jack (9/2), Presenting Julio (11/2), Bosco Di Alco (13/2), Double Portrait (7/1), Cecil Corbett (12/1), Carlitos Bay (14/1), Dinnie's Vinnie (14/1), Angus Milan (14/1), He Knows My Name (20/1), Pi Ahio (20/1), Heist (33/1)

Verdict
Gordon Elliott has a 100% record in this and saddles two strong contenders in Cecil Corbett and PRESENTING JULIO. The former has won his last three over this trip, but the selection signalled a return to form at Cheltenham last week and Davy Russell is back on board for the first time since his last success. Freewheelin Dylan is a young improving sort who can play a decent hand again, whilst Bosco Di Alco reserves his best for this track and goes well for today's rider. With blinkers fitted this time he could go well at a decent price.
  1. Presenting Julio
  2. Freewheelin Dylan
  3. Cecil Corbett
