Imperial Aura (5/1), Greaneteen (6/1), Champagne Court (7/1), Bold Plan (7/1), Remastered (7/1), Ballyandy (8/1), Coolanly (8/1), Zanza (10/1), Beaufort West (14/1), Flash The Steel (16/1), Didtheyleaveuoutto (16/1), Alrightjack (20/1), Indefatigable (20/1), The Knot Is Tied (20/1), Garo De Juilley (25/1), Tight Call (25/1), Man Of Plenty (33/1), Chic Name (66/1)

Verdict
The Silver Trophy is typically wide open and it could pay to give a chance to the returning THE KNOT IS TIED. Neil King's charge gained a deserved hurdles win at Newbury in March when stepped up to this sort of trip, form that has been nicely boosted since by the runner-up, and has potential for better now. Didtheyleaveuoutto didn't appear to get home at Galway last time and may bounce back over this more suitable journey, with Indefatigable another entering open company with potential for better things along with Coolanly (goes well fresh), Flash The Steel and Greaneteen.
