Betting

Forecast

Allaho (11/8), Walk Away (3/1), Easy Game (9/2), Canardier (8/1), Rhinestone (10/1), Choungaya (16/1), Brace Yourself (16/1), Myth Buster (20/1), Cartwright (50/1), Mr Jacaranda (100/1)

Verdict
ALLAHO has the best hurdles form and is sure to have been primed for this his debut run over fences. The selection's old rival Walk Away has vital experience of fences and can put up more of a fight this time; while Rhinestone ran no sort when he was pulled up at Cheltenham (behind Allaho) back in March and adds a touch of the unknown to the race. He's certainly one to keep tabs on in the betting, whereas Easy Game is a quality alternative for the Willie Mullins team to go to war with if anything go amiss with their main hope.
  1. Allaho
  2. Walk Away
  3. Rhinestone
