Forecast

Shantou Village (5/2), Joe Farrell (4/1), Double Shuffle (7/1), On Tour (7/1), What A Moment (15/2), Strong Pursuit (8/1), Present Man (12/1), Crosspark (14/1), Don Poli (16/1), Theatre Guide (18/1), Pingshou (20/1), Horatio Hornblower (22/1), Dancing Shadow (28/1), Virgilio (40/1)

Verdict

SHANTOU VILLAGE failed to fire last season but there have been better signs over hurdles this term and he has been given a chance by the handicapper in this sphere. Joe Farrell and On Tour both went close on their reappearance in this 12 months ago so also make the shortlist in what looks a strong and fascinating race of its type.

  1. SHANTOU VILLAGE (IRE)
  2. JOE FARRELL (IRE)
  3. ON TOUR (IRE)
