Forecast

Faivoir (11/8), The Bees Knees (11/2), Inca Rose (6/1), Norley (6/1), Dorking Lad (7/1), Blackjack Magic (9/1), Deer Hunter (11/1), Div Ine Tara (14/1), Highland Parc (16/1), Elios D'Or (33/1), Kiplin (50/1), Peaky (66/1), Irish Sovereign (100/1), Distant Universe (100/1), Berry Poppins (100/1), Cardboard Shoes (125/1)

Verdict
There is a lot of unexposed potential heading into this contest but one who already has experience under his belt in NORLEY could be one step ahead of the runners. He shaped well for a long way before tiring last time out and that debut effort should have made him more street-wise in this contest. The top-two set the form standard with their recent victories but do have penalties to contend, with Faivoir looking the more impressive over Elios D'Or comparing their victories. Other debutante's that could run well include the Fergal O'Brien-trained duo of Div Ine Tara and The Bees Knees.
  1. Norley
  2. Faivoir
  3. Elios D'Or
