Betting

Forecast

Benson (5/6), Franco D'aunou (11/4), A Distant Place (4/1), Just The Man (16/1), Conundrum (22/1), Grey Flint (33/1), Joseph Hobson (50/1), Thinque Tank (66/1), Coachella Green (150/1), River Llynfi (250/1), Paddy The Champ (250/1)

Verdict

FRANCO D'AUNOU chased home Floueur (now rated 137 for Gordon Elliott) on his hurdles debut in France when last seen and likely has a bright future for new connections. He can open his account, with A Distant Place feared most. Recent C&D winner Benson needs more to defy a penalty.

  1. FRANCO D'AUNOU (FR)
  2. A DISTANT PLACE (IRE)
  3. BENSON
