Forecast

Smurphy Enki (10/3), I Am Maximus (4/1), Calidad (11/2), Shantou's Melody (15/2), Restandbethankful (8/1), Tile Tapper (9/1), Major Robinson (9/1), Grand Lord (14/1), Animal (20/1), Fearless Fracas (22/1), Jack's A Legend (25/1), Masteroftheheights (33/1), Seymour Promise (33/1), My Drogo (50/1), Don Alvaro (50/1)

Verdict

SMURPHY ENKI spreadeageld his field when making a sparkling winning bumper debut at Wincanton so is taken to make a winning return in this much tougher contest for the excellent Chris Gordon team. Nicky Henderson landed this contest 12 months ago and his well-bred newcomer I Am Maximus is feared most, although debut bumper scorers Restandbethankful and Major Robinson are also greatly respected.

  1. SMURPHY ENKI (FR)
  2. I AM MAXIMUS (FR)
  3. RESTANDBETHANKFUL
