Forecast

Kissesforkatie (9/4), Sporting John (11/4), Harry Senior (4/1), Bullionaire (9/2), Eritage (6/1), Escrime D'Art (50/1), Whatsthecraicjack (66/1), Princess T (66/1), Breffniboy (125/1), Kendelu (200/1), Seasearch (200/1), Watar Allstar (250/1), Hartland Quay (250/1)

Verdict
Bullionaire returns with a bit to prove after his abortive hurdles debut in May, but he can't be written off after that. It would be no surprise to see him go close, while the same applies to Eritage, who was also a beaten favourite on his first try over hurdles. Harry Senior and Kissesforkatie both look potential contenders, but the vote goes to Irish point winner SPORTING JOHN, who is taken to make a winning rules debut.
  1. Sporting John
  2. Harry Senior
  3. Kissesforkatie
