Cats For Cash (2/1), Reasonable Doubt (9/2), Cavalry Master (5/1), Battle Of Midway (6/1), Dinny Lacey (7/1), Robin Des Sivola (10/1), Yendo (12/1), Fire Away (20/1), Elk Bridge (25/1), Teddy's Acre (33/1), Onawingandaprayer (33/1), Ujumpthelastuwin (100/1), Alarmist (100/1)

Verdict

Could be a battle of the experienced geldings as Battle Of Midway may not have enough to stop the potentially exciting CATS FOR CASH from the Gordon Elliott yard. The five-year-old has twice finished runner up in a couple of bumpers including going down by ¾L at Fairyhouse last month and can land the closing contest for connections getting off the mark at the third attempt. The Jessica Harrington-trained Robin Des Sivola is worthy of consideration while Cavalry Master and Yendo could be capable of hitting the frame.
