Forecast

Tokyo Getaway (4/1), Deadheat (11/2), Out Sam (9/1), High Sparrow (10/1), The Gatechecker (10/1), Macgiloney (11/1), The Caddy Rose (11/1), Ah Littleluck (12/1), Mindsmadeup (12/1), Rocky's Silver (14/1), Cap York (16/1), Mick The Jiver (20/1), Bay Hill (25/1), General Principle (25/1), The Trigger (33/1), Ballymacaw (33/1), Prospectus (33/1), Dromore Lad (40/1), Gun Digger (50/1)

Verdict

Lots with chances but TOKYO GETAWAY has long given the impression a marathon trip would suit so Gavin Cromwell's low-mileage mare is strongly fancied here after an eye-catching return over hurdles. Macgiloney is another who could step forward now sent over a longer trip, while previous winners Out Sam and The Gatechecker are much respected too.
