Forecast

The Storyteller (2/1), Tout Est Permis (5/2), Shattered Love (5/1), Balko Des Flos (8/1), Alpha Des Obeaux (11/1), Jett (14/1), Ravenhill (20/1), Freewheelin Dylan (50/1)

Verdict

THE STORYTELLER may have a fitness edge over some of his main rivals here and is taken to provide Gordon Elliott with a sixth win in this contest since 2011. His main opposition may come from reappearing stablemates Shattered Love and Alpha des Obeaux.

  1. THE STORYTELLER (IRE)
  2. SHATTERED LOVE (IRE)
  3. ALPHA DES OBEAUX (FR)
