Forecast

Jon Snow (6/5), The Bosses Oscar (4/1), Runrized (5/1), Somptueux (8/1), Friary Rock (10/1), Trevena (11/1), Fun Light (25/1), Sunday At Julia's (25/1), No Grey Area's (40/1), Earl Of Desmond (50/1), Sonnenkonig (66/1), The Gabby Cabby (66/1), Aircraft Carrier (100/1), Handsworth (100/1), Wajaaha (100/1), All Class (100/1), Lady Lingo (100/1), Regina Dracones (100/1)

Verdict
A few of these are worth noting for future reference, with THE BOSSES OSCAR topping the bill on this occasion. The gelding was beaten just ½L by the classy Blue Sari at Punchestown last month. Any improvement will make him the one to beat. Jon Snow is an obvious danger, while his stablemate Runrized is significantly eased in grade since he was last seen (at the Cheltenham Festival) and also merits serious consideration. Fun Light and Friary Rock complete the shortlist.
  1. The Bosses Oscar
  2. Jon Snow
  3. Runrized
