Forecasts

West Cork Wildway (7/2), Saint D'Oroux (5/1), Sullane Hill (11/2), The Little Yank (9/1), Strange Notions (9/1), Lucky Phil (11/1), Morning Skye (11/1), Stamina Chope (12/1), Humaniste (12/1), Future Proof (18/1), Conright Boy (18/1), Mc Alpine (25/1), Turbo (28/1), Bolbec (100/1)

Verdict

LUCKY PHIL was better than the result when plotting a wide course here last time so might be worth siding with to bring an end to Sullane Hill's winning run at this venue. Gordon Elliott's Saint d'Oroux and Strange Notions, who landed a C&D maiden hurdle when last seen in March, are also on the shortlist.

  1. LUCKY PHIL (IRE)
  2. SULLANE HILL (IRE)
  3. SAINT D'OROUX (FR)
