Forecast

Lil Rockerfeller (3/1), Captain Chaos (4/1), Ballyoptic (9/2), Drinks Interval (5/1), Relentless Dreamer (6/1), Cloth Cap (8/1), Cap Du Nord (10/1), Royal Vacation (12/1)

Verdict
He carries top-weight but BALLYOPTIC is closing in on his previous win-mark and is certain to relish the conditions/trip on a track where he was gone well enough previously in the Welsh National. His trainer was amongst the winners on Friday and could be set for more early season gains here. Relentless Dreamer represents an in-form yard and could be a big danger if stripping fit enough, while Cloth Cap should make progress this season and it would be remiss to discount the tenacious Lil Rockerfeller.
  1. Ballyoptic
  2. Relentless Dreamer
  3. Lil Rockerfeller
