Forecast

Battleoverdoyen (4/9), Minella Indo (2/1), Champagne Classic (9/4), Carefully Selected (4/1), Lord Schnitzel (10/1), Minella Fair (33/1), Speak Easy (33/1)

Verdict
BATTLEOVERDOYEN has been faultless over fences so far in two starts and he can add to his Grade One victory over hurdles with a victory at the highest level here in his novice chase campaign. Minella Indo was very successful over hurdles last season and should be in the mix here on his second run over fences, while Carefully Selected can finish in the frame as he looks to build upon his debut chase success at Fairyhouse.
  1. Battleoverdoyen
  2. Minella Indo
  3. Carefully Selected
