Theatre World (15/8), Countess Cathleen (11/4), Shakeytry (11/4), Monstrosity (8/1), Pound A Stroke (18/1), Brog Ahaon (20/1), Misty Millie (22/1), Rossderrin (50/1), Kristian Goingwel (50/1), Direct Image (66/1), Gone Galavanting (100/1)

Verdict

A fairly open look to this contest, but SHAKEYTRY has shown the best chase form so far and he is trusted to get the job done this time. Theatre World could emerge as a serious challenger, while improvement is ancipated from Countess Cathleen, Rossderrin, Brog Ahaon and Pound A Stroke.
