Forecasts

Soyouthinksoagain (5/2), Beyond The Pale (4/1), Everglow (11/2), Lord Accord (8/1), Aquila Sky (9/1), Yes No Maybe So (9/1), Kildimo (10/1), Optimise Prime (10/1), Le Cheval Noir (12/1), Tide Times (16/1), Corrany (16/1)

Verdict

Lots with chances. BEYOND THE PALE looks to have got in quite lightly on his handicap bow so Fergal O'Brien's lightly-raced 6-y-o is taken to emerge on top on his first attempt over 3m. Recent-winners Aquila Sky and Le Cheval Noir are both sure to have a say though, while the consistent Everglow and returning Yes No Maybe So can't be ruled out either.

  1. BEYOND THE PALE (IRE)
  2. AQUILA SKY (IRE)
  3. LE CHEVAL NOIR (IRE)
