Verdict

Nicky Henderson has won the last two renewals of this and saddles four in his bid for the hat-trick. Comfortably the most persuasive of them is CRAIGNEICHE, who was expertly prepared to make a winning return from a year off in January and his revised mark still underestimates him with this trip promising to suit. Guard Your Dreams and Witness Protection are a couple of many potential threats.

  1. CRAIGNEICHE (IRE)
  2. GUARD YOUR DREAMS
  3. WITNESS PROTECTION (IRE)
