Forecasts

Cape Gentleman (5/4), Homme D'Un Soir (6/4), Petibonome (11/4), Soldier Of Destiny (16/1), Oryx Hustler (40/1), Petrol Head (50/1), Appian Way (66/1), Still King (80/1), Tipperary Dexter (125/1), Greige (150/1), Monaghanarmaghlady (150/1), Brownstone (150/1)

Verdict

CAPE GENTLEMAN landed the Irish Cesarewitch with plenty in hand on his handicap debut at the Curragh in October and could prove too classy for Homme d'Un Soir and Petibonome on this switch to hurdling.

  1. CAPE GENTLEMAN (IRE)
  2. HOMME D'UN SOIR (FR)
  3. PETIBONOME (FR)
