Forecast

Abbey Magic (3/1), Debuchet (7/2), Lakemilan (5/1), Us And Them (13/2), Ornua (8/1), Lever Du Soleil (8/1), Timoteo (8/1), Articulum (8/1), Dakota Moirette (9/1), Jan Maat (11/1), Quamino (12/1), Light That (16/1)

Verdict

ABBEY MAGIC made a very encouraging return from a long lay-off when second at Kilbeggan last month and is taken to build on that and go one better now. Timoteo hasn't stood much racing in Britain in recent times but he looked a promising chaser early in 2019 and it'll be interesting to see what Gordon Elliott can do with him. Last year's winner Lakemilan also makes the shortlist.

  1. ABBEY MAGIC (IRE)
  2. TIMOTEO (FR)
  3. LAKEMILAN (IRE)
