Forecast

Batts Rock (2/5), Ificudiwud (4/1), The Rubinator (8/1), Javoski (11/1), Ballymac Boy (14/1), Killinkere (20/1), Hewick (20/1), Ya Know (25/1), Lucky Road (33/1), Tomeric (50/1), Topographical (50/1), Paul Patterson (50/1), Orena Bay (66/1), Ask Cory (66/1), Eileens Boy (66/1), Sole Vision (66/1), Doubi The Risk (100/1), Aloysius Parker (100/1)

Verdict
BATTS ROCK should probably have won one of these by now judged on his smart Flat form. He has been found lacking at the business end of his hurdle races, but this is his easiest task to date by far. Ificudiwud looks the main threat given his yard's record here and form which suggests he may improve on recent form given faster conditions. The Rubinator and Tomeric look the most interesting of the remainder.
  1. Batts Rock
  2. Ificudiwud
