Merlin Giant (11/10), Esperti (4/1), Level Neverending (9/2), Derracrin (7/1), Helisone (10/1), Le Nouveau (11/1), Bugs Moran (12/1), Eternal Story (12/1), Forever Frankie (40/1), Bella Bliss (66/1), Annaparnell (66/1), Crisis Of Identity (66/1), Easytigerbandit (66/1), Modreeney (100/1), Under Suspicion (125/1), He's In It (200/1), Uknowcarty (250/1)

Verdict

MERLIN GIANT shaped with plenty of promise when fourth in a valuable bumper at Punchestown in April and that performance is just about the best on offer here. Le Nouveau boasts a taking pedigree and couldn't be in better hands, with Esperti also considered.
