Forecast

Military Hill (3/1), Kings Eclipse (3/1), Rivabodiva (6/1), Eureu Du Boulay (13/2), Eviscerating (8/1), Ryedale Racer (10/1), Achill Road Boy (14/1), Too Many Chiefs (20/1), Heist (40/1), Stoneford (50/1)

Verdict
Achill Road Boy switches back to hurdles (seeking to exploit a more favourable mark) following a frustrating late mishap in the Norfolk National at Fakenham, while the front-running mare Rivabodiva teams up with Cameron Wadge seeking a repeat of last year's race victory (competes off the same mark of 112). However, the most interesting candidate is the handicap debutant MILITARY HILL. Paul Stafford's Irish raider has made a decent start to life over hurdles, comfortably disposing of a Willie Mullins-trained runner at Galway (2m5f maiden, soft) last month. With the useful 3lb claimer Donal McInerney back aboard he may just take some beating in an otherwise trappy contest.
  1. Military Hill
  2. Achill Road Boy
