Verdict

A case can be made for all of these but JEAN GENIE showed the benefit of a wind op when an excellent recent third at Taunton and is taken to gain a deserved first win off a 1 lb lower mark. C&D winner Chanting Hill rates a big threat, especially if keeping mistakes to a minimum this time, with Slainte Mhor also well in the mix on the back of his plucky Ayr victory.

  1. JEAN GENIE (FR)
  2. CHANTING HILL (IRE)
  3. SLAINTE MHOR (IRE)
