Forecast

K'chou Du Pecos Aa (7/4), Russian Diamond (7/2), All For Joy (4/1), Neptune (7/1), Milan Native (12/1), Cenotice (12/1), Air Gold (14/1), Up'n'over (16/1), The Artful Roger (50/1), Effernock Manor (50/1), Storm Flight (66/1)

Verdict

Willie Mullins has won the last two renewals of this race and K'CHOU DU PECOS AA makes plenty of appeal on paper to make it three in a row for Team Closutton. The Walk In The Park gelding cost a nice fee and could be useful for powerful connections. Fellow newcomers Russian Diamond and Milan Native are also worth a look while the standard is set by the returning All For Joy, which has already finished second in all four bumpers contested. Air Gold is a possible improver.
  1. K'chou Du Pecos Aa
  2. Milan Native
  3. All For Joy
