Verdict
The seven-year-old gelding CHER WHY NOT wouldn't have to improve too much to be able to play a part in the finish following a number of solid displays since the turn of the year. Hughies Bay displayed plenty of promise towards the end of the year and is entitled to make the shortlist here along with Crack On Corrie and potential improver Fr Gilligansvoyge.
  1. Cher Why Not
  2. Hughies Bay
  3. Crack On Corrie
