Forecasts

Verdict

GIVE HIM TIME can get off the mark over fences for connections at the sixth time of asking for trainer Gordon Elliott. The gelding showed a good attitude at Tramore over 2m5f last month and can continue his progression at the expense of Oskar High for trainer Norman Lee who is expected to emerge as the biggest threat. Distance winner Judy Catrail and Mr Jacaranda, better than last effort suggests, can battle for minor honours.
  1. Give Him Time
  2. Oskar High
  3. Rudy Catrail
