Verdict

Something of an Irish “banker” as they have taken the last four renewals with Gordon Elliott responsible for the last two and he has a strong chance again with last year’s winner Sire Du Berlais (now in first-time blinkers) and previous Festival winner The Storyteller. The Punchestown qualifier has been influential as a guide over the years and Relegate (previous Festival winner), A Great View and Royal Thief represent that form. WELSH SAINT represents the best of the GB squad with the selection looking unexposed as a stayer. Stoney Mountain and the amateur-ridden Jatiluwih are two others that are noted at decent prices.
  1. Welsh Saint
  2. Sire Du Berlais
  3. A Great View
