Forecast

Castle Oliver (11/4), Cheb De Kerviniou (9/2), The Long Mile (9/2), Red Jack (8/1), Shady Operator (10/1), Cap York (11/1), General Principle (11/1), Choungaya (11/1), Chef Des Obeaux (12/1), Monbeg Notorious (14/1), Bonbon Au Miel (16/1), Ah Littleluck (16/1), Mon Lino (20/1), Space Cadet (20/1), Dounikos (33/1)

Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained CHEB DE KERVINIOU can improve on his first three starts in Ireland to land the spoils in this Grade A contest. The Simon Munir/Isaac Souede-owned gelding finished a gallant third of 19 in the Grade B Grand National trial at Punchestown last month and can get the better of one of the J P McManus runners, Red Jack who ran with great credit in defeat at this venue last month over a shorter trip. Castle Oliver who is on a four-timer and Shady Operator should not be easily dismissed, while Ah Littleluck can go well at a price.
  1. Cheb De Kerviniou
  2. Red Jack
  3. Ah Littleluck
