Forecast

Open To The World (9/4), Rudy Catrail (4/1), Daisy Chicks (7/1), Crutches Lad (8/1), Glacial Shadow (9/1), Quiet Account (10/1), Loch Luatha (12/1), Doran The Legend (14/1), Maureen's Star (14/1), Bishops Quarter (16/1), Madaboy Cross (20/1), Clorinka (25/1), Shanklys Dawn (25/1)

Verdict
Winner of this contest 12 months ago, Shanklys Dawn will look to retain his crown still running off an attractive looking mark. The eight-year-old though has been badly out of form over the summer and may have to settle for place money behind the in form and recent Wexford winner, RUDY CATRAIL. The 9lb penalty for the eight-year-old may not be enough to halt progress following his first chase win at the seventh attempt and can see of his nearest pursuers in the shape of Glacial Shadow, second behind the selection at Wexford and Crutches Lad who could be of interest on handicap debut.
  1. Rudy Catrail
  2. Glacial Shadow
  3. Shanklys Dawn
