Betting

Forecast

Manofthemountain (4/1), Frodon (9/2), Cobra De Mai (11/2), Cloth Cap (13/2), Sensulano (13/2), West Approach (15/2), Cogry (8/1), Perfect Candidate (12/1), Bob Mahler (16/1), Captain Chaos (33/1), Vivas (33/1)

Verdict

This is the strongest race that MANOFTHEMOUNTAIN has contested but it has been hard not to be impressed by the manner of his victories in this sphere, and he should have even more to offer. West Approach did well over fences here last season, so another big run looks on the cards, while Cogry has finished first, second and third in the last 3 renewals and seems sure to give his running again.

  1. MANOFTHEMOUNTAIN (IRE)
  2. WEST APPROACH
  3. COGRY
