Forecast

Minella Till Dawn (5/2), Glorious Galway (3/1), Wonderoftheworld (13/2), Graineyhill (7/1), Flemenstorm (9/1), Rooster Byron (10/1), Red Jack (10/1), Mick The Jiver (14/1), Gun Digger (14/1), Colms Dream (66/1)

Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained GRAINEYHILL can add to his sole victory over the larger obstacles by landing the spoils in this contest following a fine run in defeat at Punchestown in October. The eight-year-old can win for the second time over fences at the expense of stablemate and J P McManus-owned Minella Till Dawn in first-time cheekpieces and Glorious Galway who has been running well in defeat in a number of starts since October. The Barry Connell-owned Wonderoftheworld should not be taken lightly following an earlier win at Gowran Park off a 7lb lower mark in October.
  1. Graineyhill
  2. Minella Till Dawn
  3. Glorious Galway
