Forecasts

From Eden (11/10), Cappuccino Man (9/2), Alpha Indi (5/1), British Art (8/1), Fenlon's Hill (9/1), Take A Turn (11/1), Bridge Native (12/1), Cray (14/1), Imperial Reprise (14/1), Two In One (20/1), Solar Heat (20/1), Better Back Bob (20/1), My Peggy (25/1), Get Out Of Jail (25/1), Ricky Langford (33/1)

Verdict

Gordon Elliott won this last year and has a three-pronged attack now that is spearheaded by FROM EDEN, a winner on stable debut this month at Naas over a similar trip. He settled for second under his penalty at Gowran Park but, with new headgear, might take another step forward now. Stable newcomer Alpha Indi needs close scrutiny in the betting with the champion jockey booked. Cappuccino Man is amongst the reliable options while it is interesting to see Rachel Blackmore reunited with the mare Solar Heat after a long time apart (won maiden together in 2016).
