Forecast

War Hero (7/4), Sceptical (4/1), Aloysius Lilius (5/1), She's A Babe (6/1), Empire State (10/1), Togoville (12/1), Nevereversaynever (12/1), Amanaat (12/1), Hathiq (16/1), Tanseeq (28/1)

Verdict
The Ado McGuinness-trained WAR HERO can add to his C&D win last month in this contest. The five-year-old carries 4lb more here but can get the better of his rivals with jockey Declan McDonagh boasting a record of a win and a second on the Declaration Of War gelding. The Denis Hogan-trained Sceptical appears to be the biggest danger with Empire State and Aloysius Lilius next best.
