Betting

Forecast

Real Steel (4/5), Mengli Khan (10/3), Secret Investor (5/1), Minella Fair (5/1), Ben Dundee (14/1)

Verdict

Real Steel was impressive from the front at Punchestown on his final start last term and can have a major say, though he might not get it all his own way up front with Mengli Khan in the field. The Elliott runner should be suited back down in distance here while Minella Fair is a possible improver for last year's winning connections. SECRET INVESTOR is progressing nicely over fences, goes well fresh and can ensure Britain's champion trainer Paul Nicholls doesn't leave here empty-handed.
  1. Secret Investor
