Verdict

It's worth chancing FORT WILLIAM, who was still very much in contention when brought down at the third-last at Clonmel last week. That was just his second start in this sphere and he may well have more to offer. Granted better luck than on his 2 previous over fences, Castlegrange could be a threat, while Exciting Oscar merits respect on this chase debut and Jack Fiasco is another to consider.

  1. FORT WILLIAM (IRE)
  2. CASTLEGRANGE (IRE)
  3. EXCITING OSCAR (IRE)
