Forecast

Zero Ten (1/3), Early Doors (5/1), Daly Tiger (7/1), Got Trumped (12/1), Yaha Fizz (33/1), Bay Hill (40/1)

Verdict
With three of his rivals putting in below par efforts last time out it may pay to side with ZERO TEN. There was nothing special about his reappearance run at Naas in January but that came on the back of a long lay off after winning at the Galway Festival in July. He should be a lot sharper here. Daly Tiger hasn't shown his best form in Graded company in recent starts but he has the class to make his presence felt at this level. Cheltenham Festival winner Early Doors could be thereabouts with fewer jumping errors.
  1. Zero Ten
  2. Daly Tiger
  3. Early Doors
