Forecasts

Front View (13/8), Blue Sari (15/8), Whatsnotoknow (4/1), Barnes Des Mottes (5/1), Walking Fame (13/2), Little Saint (7/1), The Miser (22/1), Thousand Tears (33/1), Shinnecock (66/1)

Verdict

Possibly best to go with leading trainer/jockey in bumpers combination here with BLUE SARI expected to come in for plenty of support in the closer for trainer Willie Mullins and son Patrick on the Saddex gelding. The J P McManus-owned Front View could emerge as the biggest danger, while Barnes Des Mottes and the Mouse Morris-trained Whatsnottoknow look the best of the rest.
