Betting

Forecast

Shantou Flyer (4/11), Kashmir Peak (5/1), Tullys Touch (6/1), Haymount (7/1), Full Irish (8/1), Llancillo Lord (25/1), Chapelier (80/1)

Verdict

Although he has to give away weight to all his rivals, SHANTOU FLYER, second in last season's Foxhunters Chase at the Cheltenham Festival looks the class act and will be hard to beat following a win at Larkhill last month that should have put him spot on. Haymount and Full Irish both have ability and will not be pushovers, but they need to raise their respective games to lower the colours of the selection in what may prove an interesting contest. Kashmir Peak looks best of the remainder.
  1. Shantou Flyer
  2. Full Irish
  3. Haymount
