Forecast

Myth Buster (6/4), Getaway John (9/4), Narcissistic (7/2), Bootlegger (10/1), Grey Exchange (33/1), Shanes Hill Glen (33/1), Harley B (40/1), Scanimax (50/1), Tinnehinch (66/1), Pegase Amour (66/1), Bowban (66/1), Bertoni (66/1), Howitsdone (100/1), Major Jim (100/1), Dark Du Tabert Aa (100/1)

Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained GETAWAY JOHN can transfer his bumper form of last winter to win over hurdles at the third time of asking for connections. In a weak looking contest, the six-year-old gelding can see off the attentions the Gigginstown Stud-owned, Narcissistic and the interesting Henry De Bromhead-trained, Myth Buster.
