Forecast

Watch Guard (3/1), Giovanni Change (9/2), Free Nelson (5/1), Method Madness (11/2), Be My Hero (13/2), Rescue Package (12/1), Rock On Aidan (12/1), Jazz Toes (16/1), Double Sixteen (20/1), Cousin Harry (25/1), Forever Magic (25/1), Drummer (50/1)

Verdict
The Joseph O'Brien-yard have won this race for the last two years and their Fastnet Rock gelding WATCH GUARD can land the spoils at the fourth time of asking. The yard boast a 35% (eight from 23) strike rate at this meeting with their national hunt runners in the last four seasons and the gelding can hold off the attentions of newcomers, Free Nelson, Giovanni Change and Be My Hero.
  1. Watch Guard
  2. Free Nelson
  3. Giovanni Change
