Forecast

Annamix (4/6), Press Conference (3/1), Big Nick (7/1), Cool Getaway (7/1), The Shunter (20/1), Accidental (20/1), Aonghus Song (66/1), West Is Best (100/1), Brindabella (100/1), Georgia Grace (100/1), Need For Gold (100/1), William Wolf (100/1), Gameasapebble (100/1), Classic Concorde (100/1), Too Much To Ask (150/1)

Verdict
It is hard to see past the opportunity for ANNAMIX to get off the mark for trainer Willie Mullins, given how highly thought of the Martaline gelding is in certain circles. The five-year-old can get his head in front of Big Nick from the in form Henry De Bromhead yard and the J P McManus-owned Cool Getaway.
  1. Annamix
  2. Big Nick
  3. Cool Getaway
