Forecast

Authorized Art (11/8), Morosini (3/1), Winner Takes Itall (7/1), Lethal Steps (10/1), Rip Rocks Paddy Ok (11/1), Rasiym (12/1), Flindt (16/1), City Ballerina (20/1), Ashqar (25/1), Indian Admiral (50/1), Stealth (100/1), Acrux Cass (100/1), Little Saint (100/1), Herdwick (100/1)

Verdict
In a very warm contest featuring six previous winners they look the way to go despite each carrying a 7lb penalty. Willie Mullins ability to convert French recruits into top performers is infamous and in AUTHORIZED ART he could have the next in line of such based on his impressive Irish debut. Almost as unexposed and just as promising is Morosini who showed his ability on debut in a Grade Two before making no mistake in a maiden. More exposed than the aforementioned duo but probably just about with the best form; Lethal Steps also must be considered.
