Forecasts

Vision D'Honneur (7/4), Klassical Dream (5/2), Dancing On My Own (4/1), Entoucas (6/1), Exceeded Brief (14/1), Dark Decade (25/1), Ben Head (25/1), Jon Ess (33/1), Glen Of Aherlow (33/1), Opportunity Knox (50/1), Prosecution (66/1), Noureev (66/1), Harley B (66/1), Saga Altais (66/1), Rio De Cerisy (66/1), Rocco's Dream (100/1), Upgraded (100/1), Tale Of Woe (100/1), Luis Van Zandt (100/1), Tormund (100/1), Darling Days (100/1)

Verdict

The standard is set by Dancing On My Own and Entoucas who have both finished second in similar contests of late but they could both be bumping into a high class recruit in Grade One entered newcomer VISION D'HONNEUR for the all-conquering Elliott/Gigginstown team so he gets the vote here. Also interesting on his Irish debut is Klassical Dream for Willie Mullins who was fourth in a French Grade One last year so he too could prove smart and is highly respected.
  1. Vision D'Honneur
