Forecasts

Breaken (9/4), Soviet Pimpernel (16/5), Exit Poll (10/3), The Very Man (7/2), Star Max (6/1), Jungle Junction (7/1), Fauguernon (14/1), Rocket Lad (20/1), The Cool Dude (250/1), Calibrator (250/1), Diegos Way (300/1), Old Town Road (300/1)

Verdict

BREAKEN would have finished no worse than second had he completed on chase debut at Punchestown in December 2019. Off the track since, but he's in top hands and appeals as the one to beat. Jungle Junction is the obvious threat on chase form, though Soviet Pimpernel should have more to offer.
