Forecasts

Verdict

A great advertisement for races of this type and most of the 17 runners can be given chances. The roof will come off the stands if Pete The Feat wins again at the age of 15, but preference is for another course specialist in RATHLIN ROSE, who looks to have been laid out for this, is nicely treated and will have no trouble with underfoot conditions. Houblon Des Obeaux and Tenor Nivernais are respected for a stable in cracking form, while a whole host of other dangers include last year's winner Buywise, his stable companion On Tour, Rock Gone, Le Reve and Cultram Abbey.
