Verdict

De Name Escapes Me will catch plenty attention as he's been doing well over hurdles here and, being almost two stone lower over fences, is well-handicapped back in this sphere. He has work to do on his previous chase form however and is overlooked. WISHMOOR was popular in the betting on debut for Joseph O'Brien but never got beyond the third. He's got plenty scope for better and is given a chance to recoup the losses. Gallant Troytown second Mr Diablo and Eight Till Late need respecting while any money for Burren Life, Goose Man or Solomn Grundy would be notable.
  1. Wishmoor
  2. Eight Till Late
  3. Mr Diablo
