Verdict
This has been a hard puzzle for backers to solve with numerous big price winners although favourite Band Of Outlaws stopped the rot last year. Ireland (eight runners this year) have taken the last two renewals and Aramax is their obvious contender (beat Recent Revalatuons last time) this time although most fascinating of the Elliott quintet looks to be TRONADOR. He looks to have been kept for this after taking on his elders when last seen 53-days ago. Paul Nicholls is another trainer with history in this event and his duo of Mick Pastor and Thyme White enter the mix.
  1. Tronador
  2. Thyme White
  3. Aramax
